Must See La Goulette


La Goulette population was initially composed exclusively of Turks and Moors. Then the city expanded after the arrival of immigrants from Malta and Sicily (in particular from provinces of Palermo, Trapani and Agrigento) attracted by the working perspectives related to the maritime and port activities.

Today the city is known for its commercial port and its cruise terminal.
