*<see name="Kasbah" alt="" address="" directions="Southwest corner of the Medina" phone="" url="" hours="" price="3 TND" lat="" long="">The kasbah was a military garrison before and during the French Protectorate (1881-1956). The French influence (buildings, etc.) has been removed and the Kasbah now hosts rooms of displays relating the the industry for which Sfax is famous; construction, metalwork and the famous Bourj and Djenes of Sfax all have their own rooms. Additionally there is a display of religious architecture and some documents in another room, with an underground mosque area also worth a vist. Definitely a HIGHlight is the view from the top of either of the towers that form part of the Kasbah.
