Zaouia Zakkak
Sousse, Tunisia

The Zaouia Zakkak lies conveniently next to the popular shopping streets in the medina, and offers the finest example of Ottoman architecture in Sousse. The minaret is octagonal, and the tile work and decorations in blue-green stone has a design probably with roots in Andalucia.
