Hammam El Rmimi mosque

Hammam Remimi Mosque (Arabic: جامع حمام الرميمي‎) is a Tunisian mosque in the Halfaouine hood in the north of the Medina of Tunis.

History[edit]

According to the commemorative plaque at the entrance, it was built in 1781 during the Husainid era.

Etymology[edit]

The mosque got its name from a hammam near to it that was founded in 1245 by Mohamed Remimi (Arabic: محمد الرميمي‎) who came from Almería during the Hafsid era.[1]

Localization[edit]

It can be found in the Hammam Remimi Street, between two gates of the medina: Bab Souika and Bab El Khadra.[2]
