Keywords: heritage, Medina, sound ambiances, content analysis

The proposed research questions the sensory imaginary, especially sound, of travellers who visited the Souks of the Medina in the 19thcentury. The restitution of this ambiantal memory is used to participate in the reconsideration of the urban and architectural heritage of this highly historic space, the Souks, by sonic ambiances. Our ambiantal approach is based on quantitative and qualitative (notion of sound effect) content analysis of the 19thcentury texts.
