Lo que dice el Arxiduc:

“From Bab-al-Tunis, a beautiful arch-shaped avenue planted with turpentine trees starts, following the shore until the steam ferry on the canal to the new port. There are numerous uninteresting buildings along the avenue. All the streets, avenues and various roads of the new city have been designed using a global planning technique… Their width allows the sea breezes to flow freely.

Bizerte has excellent, quality water which comes from two mountain springs, Aïn Nadour, near Cape “White”, and, especially, Aïn Bourass, which is very abundant and is 18 km away heading towards Tunis. The Port Authority channelled its water supply, paying 60 cents per cubic metre.”

Archduke Ludwig Salvator of Austria, Bizerte, J. Rothschild, Paris, 1900 (Prague, 1897)

Datos proyecto Nixe III:

As the Tunis gateway no longer exists, we imagine that the old arch-shaped avenue is the street we see now, widened with several lanes for cars and surrounding the new city along the sea and, in effect, reaching to the area near the canal.

The new city resembles the new neighborhoods in Tunis and, especially, Sfax.
