كنيسة القديس أوغسطينوس والقديس فيديل بحلق الوادي

St. Augustine and St. Fidel Canyon Church is a Catholic church located in Canyon Town on the outskirts of Tunis, the capital of Tunisia. The church, administered by the Sicilian Capuchin Monkey Abbey, is in the center of a small Sicilian neighborhood on the outskirts of the capital. Even if we find diocesan records from 1838, the present church was built in 1848 and completed in 1872. Cardinal Charles Marcial Lavegre asked Malta's Augustinians to oversee the church, the most famous of which was Father Salibat, who transformed the building. Shortly thereafter, I started a very active place, holding pilgrimages at Notre Dame de Trapani and parades in the city. My father last had it on August 15, 1965. The building has been undergoing restoration and maintenance work since 2007, with Italian painter Alberto Bogani changing the church's decorations. Every Sunday, during the holy Mass, the church receives English-speaking communities, especially Africans. A group of loving nuns live in the same place, caring for several elderly grandmothers who want to end their lives in Tunisia. A group of parents of the expedition, known as Lazarus, came to the same place in September 2011 to get an erection.

The tophet of Carthage, also called tophet of Salammbô, is an ancient sacred area dedicated to the Phoenician deities Tanit and Baal located in the Carthaginian district of Salammbô, Tunisia, near the Punic ports. This tophet, "hybrid of sanctuary and necropolis", includes a large number of graves of children who, according to interpretations, would have been sacrificed or buried in this place after their premature death. The perimeter is attached to the archaeological site of Carthage classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Îlot de l'Amirauté

The Carthage Punic Ports were the old ports of the city of Carthage that were in operation during ancient times. Carthage was first and foremost a thalassocracy, that is, a power that was referred to as an Empire of the Seas, whose primary force was based on the scale of its trade. The Carthaginians, however, were not the only ones to follow that policy of control over the seas, since several of the people in those times "lived by and for the sea".
