Port memory of GHAR EL MALAH ..A comb...
Tunis, Tunisia
By Zaid Abbour
02 Apr 2013

Its history witnessed the Othman and Spanish conflict in the old Port or “EL KASHLA” as the habitants of Ghar El Malah called it.
Porto farina is its old name with reference to the Admiral “Farina” whose its armies swept the city in 1534 during the reign of the Spanish Emperor “Charles Kan”.
Several strikes erupted there between the Admiral armies and the Ottomans ended with the victory of the Dayas in 1618, many forts have been built then, when they first called for the navy strikes.
Three forts and shipbuilding were designed by an architect called MOSA EL ANDOULSY EL GHARNATY during the reign of “EL DAYA Morud Osta” in the last three decades of the seventieth century which were transformed into a military base that succeeded to repulse the enemies’ attack and protect the Tunisian Eyala.
The Port is situated in the banks of a lake, linked to the sea and a canal near the estuary of OUED MAJARDA which was faced to the sand and mud, it results a decreasing in terms of its depth and a severe economic setback.
Moreover, Ahmed Bay realized the value of this place and in 1837, he ordered to bridge the Canal and to build stores for weapons and ammunitions and he provided them with necessary finance.
Ghar El Malah was transformed again into a military base with a sophisticated Navy Port composed of more than 10 thousands. And from this Port, Ahmad Bay and Ahmed Ibn Aby Dhayef sailed to France on November, 5th, 1846.
After his death, the Canal was messed out of lack of maintenance, those installations were ruined, and the fleet was converted to the Port of “la Goulette”.
Today, EL KASHLA is seen as an anchorage for the small fishing boats representing the livelihood of dozens of families in the city.
In this place, images met with words and commemorate the history of our civilization.
The Mediterranean breeze is mixed with a nice fragrant of their glory.
