Photographer's Note

Mahdia lies in a sheltered situation on a small rocky peninsula, which is linked with the mainland only by a narrow isthmus. It is the economic center of the southern Sahel and in recent years has developed into Tunisia's largest fishing port. Mahdia has a picturesque Medina and a beautiful sandy beach to the north of the town. The strategic advantages of this site on its tongue of land were realized by the Phoenicians, who built a rectangular harbor with watch-towers to defend it.
