10th International Meeting of Photographers of Ghar el Melh

Published on 07-05-2016 Agenda

The ancient Punic city of Ghar el Melh makes history by organising the most important international photo event in Tunisia.

50 kilometres north of Tunis, at the feet of Djebel Nador, lays the lagoon full of fish of Ghar el Melh and the city of the same name, built by Phoenicians 1,000 years B.C. Besides its historical site and famous stretch of salt water, Ghar el Melh is famous for the fine sand beach of Sidi Ali El Mekki, 5 kilometres from the city centre.

Each year, the most important photography event in Tunisia happens in Ghar el Melh: the International Meeting of Photographers. With no thematic requirements, exhibitions and workshops take place in Lazaret, an old Ottoman fortress, which once turned this antique Punic city into Tunisia's first military base. During the festival, Sidi Ali El Mekki is also a place of numerous parties in front of the majestic Mediterranean ocean.
