The church of St George ‘the liberator of the captives’ in Tunis

The church of St George ‘the liberator of the captives’ in Tunis
In the mid-16th century, many Greeks had been the victims of the pirates and were imprisoned in Tunis. In 1647, the Greeks of Tunis who had been liberated founded the oldest organized Greek community in Africa and proceeded to the erection of a church. The temple was dedicated to St. George, the "liberator of the captives." In 1846, the church was destroyed due to deterioration and a new one was created. In 1901, the Greeks of Tunis built the temple of St. George that stands up to this day.
