Statue of Habib Bourguiba

Statue in Tabarka

This fine statue of Tunisia's first president in reflective pose commemorates the exile of Habib Bourguiba to Tabarka by the French in the early 1950s before his negotiation of Tunisian independence. Appropriately enough, the statue sits on a plinth of a roundabout in the centre of Tabarka on Ave Habib Bourguiba.
