Kairouan is a holy city and spiritual capital of Islam with its historic Great Mosque.
Tunisia "the Green" as we call it in Arabic, is indeed the haven of green vineyards and olive groves up north and lush oases down south. Some of the most spectacular of ancient Roman and Islamic sites anywhere are to be found in the magnificent historic sites of Tunisia, though, most of this Islamic historic heritage is still unearthed. Ifriquia is the ancient name of Modern Tunisia after which the whole continent is named to become Africa. Tunisia was home of the Carthaginians, the stubborn rivals of the Romans with whom they had the longest war in human history. The Punic war lasted for over 120 years to end up with the victory of the Romans and the complete destruction of Carthage. Tunisia would not regain its prestige until the Arabs came promoting a just and equitable religion namely Islam. The Islamic civilization flourished in North Africa, Tunis became a center of learning by the creation of one of the oldest universities on earth called Azzaytouna "the olive tree".
Today, Tunisia is the most advanced and progressive Muslim nation in North Africa. Predominately Muslim, People are open-minded with a great sense of hospitality to host visitors from around the globe. Islamic Heritage is a factor one has to be proud to discover its roots in the birth of an equitable civilization that never had an equal.
