Kairouan Details

Kairouan in Tunisia is the home of the oldest Muslim site for worship in all of Africa. Those who are Muslim consider the Great Mosque in Kairouan the fourth holiest site in the Islam faith. Since many of those who live in North Africa and are of the Muslim faith will be unable to ever make the long trip to Mecca, as required by their religion, the Great Mosque has become a destination for a pilgrimage. Those who are not Muslim are not allowed to venture inside this mosque, but the doors are usually left open, allowing people to see the beautiful interior. Do note that any female who visits even the outside of the mosque is expected to be dressed modestly.
