Sousse / Tunesië
The Tunisian city Sousse (also: Susa) is located in the north-east of the country. The city has about 230,000 inhabitants and has an important Mediterranean port.
Probably the city was already founded by Phoenicians as a trading port in the 9th century and experienced an immense boom in antiquity and the Middle Ages, first because of the textile industry and second because of tourism. The city is still characterized by these exciting opposites: on the one hand historical buildings in the old town, on the other hand, beach life and French architecture in the north of the city.
