                         Tunis, Tunisia

 Maybe not be Tunis, but a slice of Tunisia.

 

Saint Louis Cathedral is an old Roman Catholic cathedral located in Carthage. Situated on the peak of Byrsa Hill and near the ruins of the ancient Punic and then Roman city, the cathedral is no longer used for worship but hosts concerts of Tunisian music and classical music.

It was 43C when we visited this site. The shade of the trees was a welcoming place.

 

The town got its name for a  Muslim religious figure who lived there, Aboud Said Ibn Kalef ibn Yahia Ettamini el Beji (before he came along, it was called Jabal el-Menar). The town is known for the extensive use of blue and white colors all over the town.

During the 1920s, Rudolphe D'Erlanger applied the blue-white theme.
