This is one end of an aqueduct that spanned over 100km and took 40 years to build. It brought water from the mountains to Carthage and was the idea of Emperor Hadrian.

We saw this place whilst sat on a coach during a tour. Sadly we didn't get to walk around. It looked very interesting but there wasn't much there. The condition they were in looked amazing.

This was just on the other side of the restaurant that we had lunch. Compared to other aqueducts that we have seen before, this one is at almost ground level.

The water was drawn from more than 100 km (70 miles) from the mountains. A work of Roman engineering. Cisterns were even more impressive (all that water stored) If on a tour bus headed back to Tunis (capital), sit on the right side to take...More
