Highlights of Tunis
Tunis is the capital of Tunisia, itself being the most northern country in Africa. Tunis has over 2.7 million inhabitants and is the third largest city in the Maghreb region, after Casablanca and Algiers.
In the centre of Tunis is the Ancient Medina, a UNESCO World Heritage site. East of the centre is “la nouvelle ville”, the new city with a large boulevard called Avenue Habib Bourguiuba. As a result its size and style, this boulevard has earned the nickname of the Tunisian Champs Elysee. Check out the colonial buildings along the Avenue.
Originally a Berber settlement, Tunis had excellent views of traffic passing in and out of Carthage, an ancient Phoenician coastal city. Prior to the development of Rome, Carthage was the most strategical city for trade in the Mediterranean basin. As a result of its importance, Carthage often came under attack. It was the Third Punic War in 146 BC that destroyed Carthage, and also Tunis. Beaten by the Romans, it then became Roman Carthage but over time its importance declined. Regional power shifted to Tunis as Roman Emperor Augustus chose to rebuild Tunis first.
With the Romans came religion and for some time Tunis lived under Christian influences. However it was at the end of the 7th Century with the invasion by Arab Muslim troops that turned the city to Islam. Apart from the politics of the time, Tunis had an influx of refugees from Spain. Many Andalusian Muslims and Jews chose to settle in the 15th century after Spain’s La Reconquista, driving those on the losing side out of the country.
In 1881, Tunis became a French protectorate. The city divided into two parts. The older arab quarters and the new town with immigrants mostly French bringing construction in water supplies, electricity and public construction.
The top tourist attraction in Tunis is the Medina. Other religious buildings of importance are Zitouna Mosque and Dar Lasram. Gates heading to the Medina offer good photo opportunities, namely Bar El Bhar. For Christians, there is the Cathedral of St. Vincent de Paul, a Roman Catholic Church dedicated to the saint of charity.
Place de l’Independence and Kasbah Square are two places not to miss either. Having said that, a visit to the Main Tunis Market – Fondouk El Ghana – will memorize you with its colours and offerings.
If it is a stroll you seek, then walk down Avenue Habib Bourguiuba or go to Belvedere Park.
For art galleries seek out Roumouz, which also has pottery and other souvenirs. Masion I’Image is also highly praised as is Gallery Gorgi. And for museums you have the National Military Museum which helps you put some of Tunisia’s history into context.
After a hard day’s walk, you may then wish to go to a hamman. The oldest being right next to the Souk, El-Methihra Hamman.
