One of the main attractions of Monastir is Ribat Hartem, which was built in the 8th century by General Hartem ibn Ayun. Throughout the history of its existence, the fortress was rebuilt many times. Now, without the participation of specialists, it is impossible to determine which part belongs to this or that century.
Despite its centuries-old history, the fortress looks quite impressive. Above the entrance to the northern part of Ribat, there is a platform with a magnificent view of the city and the cemetery of Cuba.
Now, within the walls of Ribat Hartem, there is a museum of Islam.
