Ksibet El Mediouni (Arabic: قصيبة المديوني‎) is a small city located in the region of the Sahel in Tunisia around 10 km south Monastir. Its origins are thought to be linked to the establishment of an observation post of the Almoravids to control Christian incursion on this part of the Tunisian coast.

Its name is linked to the local saint Mohamed Ben Abd'Allah El Mediouni who may be an Almoravide coming from the village of Mediouna near Casablanca in Morocco.
