Sidi-Bou-Said on the bottom, then the Mosque of Carthage and the former Cathedral of Saint-Louis. The cathedral was erected over the Byrsa hill at the exact location where was the Carthaginian temple of Eshmoun. In 146 BC, the last carthaginians, surrounded by the romans, set fire to the building and died in the flames. After 700 years of existence, phoenician Carthage was no more. #Tunis #Tunisia #Tunez #Tunisie.
