BIZERTE
The Spanish fort

Bizerte, Tunisia


As it now stands, the Spanish fort may allure you to visit, but there is little reward coming up here. Except for the views over Bizerte. Most of the area has been turned into an outdoor theatre.
The fort dates back to 1570, but was probably not even completed as the Spanish were driven out by the Ottoman Turks already in 1573.
