Among The Historical City
Bizerte is the oldest city in Tunisia, and the northernmost city in Africa.
The Kasbah district lies just on the north side of the old port. Its walls allow you fine views of the old harbor if you climb to the top. The Kasbah’s interior is occupied by houses and contains a 17th-century Hanafite mosque.
Its fortifications sit on foundations that began life as a 6th-century Byzantine fort, but the building works you see today were constructed during the 17th century under Ottoman rule
