Al Haoua Mosque
This mosque is located in the Medina area of the city.
This mosque was built in 1252 by Princess Lady Sovereign Hafsid Atf Abu Zakaria I, mother of Mohamed al Moustancir Billah. As it fell into ruin, it became subsequently known as "outdoor mosque" because it was built on a hill overlooking the gardens and orchards in a place called "Rawdha Essououd".
When the Andalusians came to Tunis they used it as an educational institution.
