The Saint Louis Cathedral in Carthage, now renamed Acropolium, was built between 1884 and 1890 by Cardinal Lavigerie and dedicated to king Louis IX of France (Saint Louis) who died of the plague on the beach in Carthage whilst besieging the city during the eighth crusade.
It is built in a Byzantine-Moorish style on a site that was once the Roman Capitol and measures 65 meters by 30. Two square towers frame the facade and a cupola covers the part of the cathedral where the four arms of its Latin cross shape meet. Next to the cathedral is the National Museum of Carthage.
It has not been a place of worship since 1964 and its name was changed along with its function in the 1990s. Today, it used for classical concerts and exhibitions, including the Musical October festival. The programme of events can be consulted on the Acropolium's web site.
Jazz à Carthage
Since 2005, the "Jazz à Carthage" festival has showcased around fifteen acts every April. Tunisian and international artists are involved in concerts taking place in several venues around the city, including the Acropolium (the Saint Louis Cathedral).
Past artists have included Al Di Meola, Ike Turner, Al Jarreau, Barbara Hendricks and Murray Head to name a few. The current year's programme is available on the festival's website.
Musée National de Carthage
The National Museum of Carthage is situated next to the Acropolium on Byrsa Hill which dominates the city of Carthage. It is housed in an old seminary of the Peres Blancs (the white fathers, missionaries in Africa) and it was them who started the excavations which form the basis of the collections found in the museum.
All around the building itself, a number of excavated sites are found, such as the Roman forum or some Punic houses. From here visitors can benefit from a view over Carthage and the Bay of Tunis.
The exhibitions within the museum follow a chronological order, with Punic, Roman, Christian an Arabic objects on display, in fact most of the objects found in and around Carthage. A model of the city of Carthage gives an idea of its size and organisation.
The museum is open from 8am to 7pm between April and mid-September and from 8.30am to 5.30pm during the rest of the year.
