Every city in Tunisia has a "Great Mosque," but the Great Mosque of Kairouan is the most important of all. The oldest and most important Islamic building in North Africa and the model for all later Moorish sacred architecture, it was originally built by Oqba ibn Nafi, the Arab commander who founded Kairouan, in 672.
