Where is Kassérine Located?
The city of Kassérine – the capital of the governor of the same name-is known for the cultivation of the Espartogram. This grass is the raw material for cellulose production. The city, located in the west of Tunisia, has about 82,000 inhabitants. The Djebel Chambi National Park is located in the Kasserine Region. Here there is a lot of forest and also the stock of Wild game (Wild Boars, partridges, hares, fox, jackal…) has increased in recent years. Gradually, the local forestry office in Kasserine organizes hunting again.
What Country is Kassérine in?
In the west of the town of Kasserine – in the modern district-the remains of the ancient Roman Cillium extend. Most of this ancient city has not yet been excavated, like so many Roman estates in Tunisia! One can see a triumphal arch, which, however, is not comparable with the arch of Diocletian in Sbeitla (Sufetula). The remains of a Byzantine fortification dating back to the first half of the 5th century AD can be seen nearby, as well as the remains of an early Christian basilica. Below this site there is a small theatre on a slope protected.
