Tunisia Culture & Archeology
|Tunisian people are
99.99% polite, dignified and friendly to visitors. Don't be put off by
aggressive shopkeepers in tourist centers. As soon as you get away from the
tourist areas, meeting Tunisian people is a delight. It may help a lot if
you can speak a little French. Most people speak Arabic.
As Christmas is only a minor religious event for Muslim people,
December and January is an excellent time to visit North Africa. The days
can be warm and sunny although the nights are cold.
Tunisia has many
wonderful ancient sites. You can explore ancient Berber, Punic, Roman,
Vandal, Byzantine and early Islamic ruins. Many are in excellent condition -
and many more are scarcely excavated. Although there are organized
excursions from beach resorts to some of the more glamorous sites, we
suggest that you rent a car.
|Map of Tunisia
||TUNISIA is south of Italy, between Algeria
and Libya. Although its beaches are an increasingly popular tourist
destination, few visitors venture far from their hotels.
||CARTHAGE was founded by the Phoenicians
around 814 BCE. It became a maritime centre and, after the Punic Wars,
the third-largest city of the Roman Empire. Carthage was captured by the
Vandals in XXX and was destroyed by Arabs in 692 CE.
The best view of Carthage is from Byrsa Hill -
the city center of Punic and Roman times. Visit the museum and the huge Antonine Baths
that had hot rooms, a cold plunge pool and a Roman Jacuzzi.
The ports of Carthage could once harbor over 200 ships. Nearby Tophet was used for child sacrifice - the ashes of
more than 20,000 young boys were found, sacrificed by fire in the eighth
||EL JEM: 80km (50 miles) south of Sousse
is a small town with a giant amphitheatre that is only slightly smaller than
the Colosseum in Rome, and better preserved. It was built between 230
and 238CE in the market town of Thysdrus. The amphitheatre could seat over
30,000 people. It was built from blocks of sandstone from
quarries 32km (20 miles) and brought water from 16km (10 miles) through
an underground aqueduct. The amphitheatre was used for festivals and for
gladiatorial contests. Criminals and captives fought against gladiators and wild animals
- to the death.
||DOUGGA: These well-preserved Roman ruins
are about 100km (60 miles) from Tunis, in the Numidean town of Thugga (second century BC).
Roman Dougga had a population of about
10,000. The main attraction is the Capitol (built in 166 BC),
dedicated to Jupiter, Juno and Minerva. Its theatre could seat up to
3500, and is still used for performances. You may be amused by
the horseshoe arrangement of 12 latrines in the Baths of Cyclops. The House of Trifolium
was a brothel.
||MUSTI: South of Dougga is Musti has a triumphal arch on the east and the temples, fortress
and an unexcavated town on
Look for olive presses.
||BULLA REGIA: Situated 72km (45 miles)
south of Tabarka, Bulla Regia is an impressive site. I features underground homes
in which wealthy residents
could escape summer heat. The villas were paved with beautiful mosaics, many of which
were undisturbed for
centuries. Others were removed to the Bardo museum.
||MAKTAR: This Roman city on the top of a hill,
was founded by the Numidians as a stronghold against
the Carthaginians. The Romans used it as a fortress against the Berbers.
Maktar has two triumphal arches, large
baths and the Schola Juvenum, a recreation centre. Maktar survived until the
10th century, when the Banu Hillal invaded Tunisia.
||HAIDRA: Once Ammaedara, this
Roman city is one of the oldest in Africa. It was a
border city protecting the fertile valleys from the Berber mountain tribes.
Although Haïdra is largely unexcavated, it is one of the largest Byzantine fortresses in Tunisia,
with a Vandal chapel, a well-preserved Byzantine church and underground baths.
Visit the tower mausoleums.
||THUBURBO MAJUS: Although first settled in
the fifth century BCE, most ruins at Thuburbo Majus are from Roman times.
This town was a trading centre with a population of around
8000. The best-preserved structures are the Forum, Capitol and
Winter Baths. There is also an amphitheatre.
KERKOUANE: Some 8km north of Kelibia are the remains of a
Punic town. Destroyed in 236 BC, it is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There is a museum housing pottery, jewelry, wooden carvings and funerary statues.
UTICA: Close to Tunis, Utica was an important Roman port but now lies 11km
(7 miles) inland. It includes part of a once-massive public baths and the
SBEITLA: A massive triumphal arch and a Roman Forum built in
139 BC. A newer structure is the sixth-century St Vitalis Basilica with a baptismal font decorated with mosaics.
