Day trip to Uthina Zaghouan and Thuburbo Majus from Tunis or Hammamet - 1 Day


From Tunis, the road goes along a partially restored Roman aqueduct, reminding us that Tunis, since Antiquity, drinks the spring water of the Zaghouan mountain. On the way, archaeology lovers will appreciate the site of Oudna, a Punic city that became Roman. The villa known as “Laberii” with its thirty rooms on 2 300 m² deserves a special visit for its mosaics, a well-preserved archaeological site includes an amazing amphitheater that could once accommodate 20 000 spectators. Then we will visit the Andalusian medina of Zaghouan, to finish with Thuburbo Majus, an ancient city that experienced a decline in the mid-third century before a brilliant rebirth in the fourth century, which led it to proclaim itself Respublica Felix Thuburbo Majus. The Vandal invasion, in the mid-fifth century, put an end to the prosperity of the city and brought it back to the rank of a city that, shortly after the Arab conquest, was abandoned.

-Visit of the Andalusian medina of Zaghouan: (1 hour) where the Berbers, the Punics settled on the foothills of the Djebel Zaghouan for many centuries. Then quickly the Romans have indeed developed in this region to capture and use the most precious good for the whole civilization: water. Indeed, several important existing springs at the foot of the Jebel. Thus, the Romans built, around 130 AD, the huge aqueduct connecting the ancient city of Ziqua to Carthage, allowing to supply the capital with water. Later, the Arabs settled. The city underwent a major evolution from 1609, with the installation of an important Andalusian community, expelled from Spain. The community imported many architectural, culinary and artisanal skills that can still be found today while walking through the old city. Finally, the colonial era, more recent, also left many testimonies.
