What people are saying:

The oldest part of the ancient city of Carthage is located at the foot of Mount Birsa near the coast, which is also the core of the city of Carthage. On Mount Birsa, the Carthaginians built strong fortifications. The walls there are 34,000 meters long, 13 meters high, and 8 meters wide. There is a watchtower every 60 meters. After excavation, archaeologists discovered that in addition to the vaguely recognizable architectural relics such as palaces and residences, there are also many sarcophagi, burial objects, and palace ruins from the Byzantine era.
