Resting at Hammamet beach.
Due to its beaches it is a popular destination for swimming and water sports. It was the first tourist destination in Tunisia. It is located in the south east of the northern peninsula of Cap Bon in the Governorate of Nabeul, on the northern edge of the Gulf of Hammamet.
It is particularly known for jasmine, and this is how the tourist resort of Yasmine Hammamet got its name. All over Hammamet, souvenirs made of jasmine can be found.
Before the year 1, there was a settlement called Pupput. It was a town (now in the suburbs of Hammamet) that became a Roman colony in 2nd century. In 13th century, walls around town were built and medina of Hammamet was built in 15th century. Then it came under Spanish and Turkish rule. In World War II, it became one of the headquarters of general Erwin Rommel.

Olá Armando. Cores excelentes numa composição bem feita. Boa profundidade e definição. Como eu sou apreciador do formato mais horizontal, teria aproveitado para cortar um pouco o céu mas isso é uma questão pessoal. Bom trabalho. Paulo
