Summary:
The courtyards, winding passages, and mosques of the Medina; an Art Nouveau theatre, churches, a brutalist hotel, and contemporary glass facades: Tunisia?s capital has a rich and incredibly diverse built heritage. In addition, the archaeological remains at nearby Carthage give an impression of the power of an ancient city that once rivalled the Roman Empire. 0This architectural guide presents over 100 sites in both Tunis and its surroundings. The Tunisian architect Faouzia Ben Khoud selects buildings from a long stretch of history: from the Phoenicians, who first founded a city there, to the Arab Spring, which began in Tunisia in 2010. Also covering recent renovation projects in detail, the author puts special emphasis on efforts to preserve the city?s exceptional cultural heritage.
