North Africa - Morocco and Tunisia

Dar Menebhi Palace

For hundreds of centuries Berbers have lived on the coast of North Africa from Egypt to the Atlantic Ocean. Over time, the coastal regions of the continent saw a long parade of invaders and colonists including Phoenicians (who founded Carthage), Greeks , Romans, Vandals and Alans, Byzantines, Arabs, Ottomans, and the French and Spanish.
