Traditional handicrafts and a wide range of products responding to all the tastes are available in the boutiques, souk and fondouks of Médina.
More than two hundred boutiques are awaiting you to offer you treasures worth one thousand and one nights.
The souk is a bazaar occupied by a group of specialized merchants. In Médina Mediterranea, it is a real architectural museum, animated by craftsmen and dressed-up walkers-on.
Built on two floors, the underground for the traditional small workshops and the first floor for the more modern boutiques, it evolves inch by inch offering stylistic sequences without any repetition. Neither the windows, nor the doors, nor even the columns are the same: everything is built as a unique piece of art; even the roof changes according to the place! It is a wink of the Tunisian bazaars, but of Morocco, Persia and Turkey as well.
The fondouk is a caravanserai; the four fondouks of Médina Mediterranea are essentially showrooms, and places for sale of Tunisian handicrafts, where you can admire the skills of Tunisian craftsmen at work.
The "Fondouk La Goulette" is inspired from Tunisian Jewish architecture. It is conceived with the aim of preserving the Jewish cultural and architectural patrimony in Tunisia.
The Syrian Fondouk "El Hamidia": there, homage is given to the silk weavers of Damascus and the craftsmen fully at work while explaining their art.
Fondouk "Baghdadi": homage to the past splendors of Irak. It gathers the virtuosos of ceramic and glass soufflé..
Fondouk "Marrakech": homage to Morocco, to the most frequented souk of Africa. It is a concentration of craftsmen specialized in leather and wool.
