Cultural Holidays to Carthage, Tunisia

  • Ancient ruins at Carthage, Tunisia

Carthage refers both to an ancient city in Tunisia and to the civilization that developed within the city's sphere of influence. The city of Carthage is located on the eastern side of Lake Tunis across from the centre of Tunis. Originally founded by Phoenician colonists under the leadership of Elissa, Queen Dido, Carthage became a large and rich city and thus a major power of the Mediterranean until her destruction in the Third Punic War. Although the centre of the Punic culture was destroyed, it continued in Roman times. Rome also refounded Carthage, becoming one of the three most important cities of the Empire, a position that would last until the Muslim conquest when it was destroyed a second time in 698. Today Carthage is being resettled as a suburb of Tunis.
