Tunisia Attractions: Bulla Regia, Caves, Skywalker Home

While Tunisians sort out their future after a distraught vendor sparked the Arab protests in December 2010, the country’s past continues to attract the World Monuments Fund.

Since 2009, the WMF, an international nonprofit dedicated to the preservation of historic architecture and sites, has been helping to stabilize and safeguard the ruins of Bulla Regia, a once prosperous colony-city not far from Carthage, the home of Hannibal and the abandoned Queen Dido of Virgil’s poem.
