The aim of this paper is to study the urban evolution in the medina of Tunis with a focus on atmospheres and users’ feelings. Thus, this investigation approaches this topic by means of the sensorial aspects that have been created in this historic centre. This research work compares past and new sensorial feelings expressed by the users of the medina. Old feelings are explored in the literature sources that describe the old life in the medina, whilst new ones are collected by means of observation and interviews.
