Bursa Hill in Carthage, Tunisia

The Bursa Hill was once in the center of ancient Carthage, overlooking the sea.  On the top of Bursa Hill stands the Roman Catholic Cathedral of Saint Louis.  Also on the hill is the National Museum of Carthage, housing artifacts from the ancient city.  From Bursa Hill, one can see ruins in the foreground and the modern city in the background.   A map of Carthage shows the relative location of the sights I saw in Carthage, in particular the Antonine Baths (No. 2), the Amphitheater (No. 7), and Bursa Hill with the Cathedral, Museum, and Punic Quarter (No. 9).  Also on the hill is the National Museum of Carthage, housing artifacts from the ancient city and a model of the Punic Quarter of Bursa.
