Kairouan

It is home of Islam’s most sacred Islamic sanctuary in North Africa: The Oqba Mosque; and with its animated souks, world-famous rugs, its streets with immaculate walls painted a blue color, Kairouan is a truly Islamic city that was able to preserve its power and charm of long ago.

 

 

Kairouan

 

 

Founded in 670 AD, Kairouan was born as a vast military camp from which the name “Qayrawan” (caravan stopover) is derived .  The choice for the location of Kairouan as successor to Carthage is a surprising one as it is in a semi-stepped region with hot, dry climate and weak, irregular precipitation.

The reasons seemed to be more military/strategic than purely geographic or economic.  In fact, Carthage was at the moment constantly exposed to the Byzantine threat. 

On the contrary, Kairouan was at the same time far from the sea and geographically in the center of the country, from whence its armies could disperse in all directions to combat the stubborn resistance of the Berber tribes.
