Bonjour ! Comment allez-vous? Salut ! from Carthage Tunisia for a Roman and French experience.
Carthage was once a great empire and a key importance to Roman history. The first great imperial opponent led by Hannibal ..
..who dared the mighty Romans to the very brink of defeat.
The Romans returned to Carthage and built on its ruins a new Carthage resplendent with great buildings Aqueducts, Villas, Baths and Colleseums.
Carthage became the administrative capital for Africa and its importance can be seen in the Antoinine Thermal baths, one of the largest ever built.
Now the ruins of both empires lay open to the sun and wildflowers.
The cathedral of Saint Louis and the National Museum which crowns the hill of Byrsa holds an impressive collection of Punic and Roman statues.
This breathtakingly beautiful site was declared as a national monument.
Wait for my next posting from la rue principale..Sidi Bou Said…Au revoir.
