The Antonine Baths - Carthage - Tunisia

May 2015
Wellington, New Zealand

The aqueduct draws on several sources which ran dry at different times. The first and most important source is located near the town of [ame=""]Zaghouan[/ame] in the Djebel Zaghouan, a mountain range about 60 km south of Carthage. In Roman times a sacred fountain structure was built over the spring, which became one of the most important in ancient North Africa.

Some of the cisterns in the system are still in use today.

The silver fence in the distance RHS is the Presidential palace boundary wall.
