Historically, this city is often associated with the once powerful Carthage, which is a suburb. In just a few centuries, Tunisia was ruled by the Romans, pirates, Berbers, Arabs, Turks, Spaniards and the French. The latter took over the city in 1881, and under their rule it began to develop rapidly, allowing it to become a new city, with widespread public transport and industry. With the advent of 1956 the state gained its independence and today it is possible to see a business center and an ancient mosque or an oriental bazaar next to fashionable boutiques.
