The Phoenicians' Route

The Phoenicians’ Route refers to the connection of the major nautical routes used by the Phoenicians, since the 12th century BC, as essential routes for trade and cultural communication in the Mediterranean.

Through these routes, the Phoenicians – genial sailors and merchants – and other great Mediterranean civilizations contributed to the creation of a “koiné”, a Mediterranean cultural community, producing an intense exchange of manufactured articles, people and ideas.
