THE CITY OF CARTHAGE
Carthage, an ancient city on the shores of modern-day Tunisia, carries a storied history that spans empires and cultures. Founded by the Phoenicians, it evolved into a powerful maritime civilization and rival to Rome. The Punic Wars between Carthage and Rome reshaped the Mediterranean's course. The city's strategic location brought prosperity through trade and innovation, yielding remarkable architecture, including the legendary Byrsa Hill and awe-inspiring harbors. Carthage's legacy is intertwined with luminaries like Hannibal, whose military feats left an indelible mark on warfare. Yet, despite its greatness, Carthage met its demise in the Third Punic War, facing destruction by Rome. The city's resilience is reflected in its subsequent revival under Roman rule.
