Tabarka is a coastal town located in north-western Tunisia, at about, close to the border with Algeria. It has been famous for its coral fishing, the Coralis Festival of underwater photography and the annual jazz festival. Tabarka's history is a colorful mosaic of Phoenician, Hellenistic, Roman, Arabic and Ottoman civilizations. The town is dominated by an offshore rock on which is built a Genoese castle. Nationalist leader Habib Bourguiba, later to become president of post-independence Tunisia, was exiled here by the French colonial authorities in 1952.HistoryAlthough older sources placed Thabraca within the Roman province of Numidia, recent ones agree in placing it in the Roman province of Africa, known also as Africa Proconsularis. It was a Roman colony. It was connected by a road with Simitthu, which it served as a port for the export of its famous marble. At Thabraca the rebellious Roman official Gildo, the brother of Firmus, committed suicide. Under the Vandal king Gaiseric it had a monastery for men and a convent for women.
