In the history of the Greek, Roman and North African civilizations there are few places as important or as evocative as Carthage. In 1979 UNESCO recognized the global importance of the city and its archeological remains and named it a World Heritage Site. In 1985 the Tunisian government made the entire site a protected zone and prohibited building.
In addition, a large Mosque named El Abidine (in honor of now ex-president Zine El Abidine Ben Ali) with parking was constructed inside the protected zone. This Google Map shows the rough outline of the protected area and two large zones of construction (the housing development is towards the top right of the protected green area, and the mosque below and to the left).
