Tunisia, the African charm

| 0 comments

Tunisia is a city full of exotic details that give it a special charm, so in Nautalia we like the capital of the Republic of Tunisia.

This charming town is located in northern Africa, the end of the Gulf of Tunis, between the coastal plain and the hills that surround it. It is linked by a canal to the port of La Goulette. In the north of the city can discover the green mass of Belvedere, and the Southwest, Jellaz Hill Cemetery. To the east is the medina of Tunis, the city center and the main place you must visit.

The medina is composed of alleys and covered passageways. We bring them to a magical world filled with dense crowd of odors and a variety of colors derived from the assets and bustling centers of trade and barter that are there. You see many products that are declared as offerings. From the most elaborate leather to plastic utensils in large bazaars of souvenirs for tourists and even tiny artisan workshops. Of course, the medina of Tunis was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1979.

Come to the modern city through the door of France, formerly called “sea gate”. It is crossed by the great avenue Bourguiba, considered by many to be the Tunisian Champs-Elysees. You see how their colonial-style buildings of the early twentieth century in contrast to the Moorish architecture of the ancient city, whose name would be the “city of the Indians.”

And these are just the main places. Undoubtedly, more than three thousand years of history of Tunisia have made ‚Äč‚Äčthis city … a true African charm!
