Tunis, capital of Tunisia, is located north of the country, on the Mediterranean. Its geographical location between the Western and Eastern Mediterranean, between Africa and Europe, makes it one of the leaders in the administrative, commercial and financial field.
Tunis was a small Berber town, living in the shadow of powerful Carthage. It developed around a medina, which still exists today, with several mosques, the most important of which is the great Zitouna mosque. Walls were built around it and the Kasba citadel was erected to protect the city from invaders.
Tunis today is a modern city with both restored old quarters and a renovated downtown.
