Tunisia - Nabeul

A walk in Nabeul.

Sent by Jamel from Hammamet, Tunisia. This is one of the five postcards sent by him in year 2006.

This is from Wikipedia : Nabeul (Arabic: نابل‎, pronounced [ˈnɛːbil]; French: [naˈbøl]) is a coastal town in northeastern Tunisia, on the south coast near to the Cap Bon peninsula. It is located at around 36°27′N 10°44′E / 36.45°N 10.733°E / 36.45; 10.733 and is the capital of the Nabeul Governorate. The city has a population of 56,387 (2004 census).

A former Roman colony, its name is an Arabised form of the Greek Neapolis 'new city' (an etymology it shares with Naples, Nafplion, and Nablus).

It is a popular tourist destination and the main centre of the Tunisian pottery industry.
