Photographer's Note

Taken in the small coastal town of Mahdia. Mahdia is a lovely little place with blue and white painted houses and small cobbled streets, nice for walking around in.
Mahdia was founded in AD916 by the Fatimids. Fishing mainly for sardines and tourism are the towns main income earners. One enters the old city through a massive fortified gate, all that remains of the the original Fatimid city, it is a narrow vaulted passageway almost 50m long. There are several mosques and a huge fortress called Borj el-Kebir which stands on the highest point of the peninsula and was built in the 16th century. There is also a nice light house.
