This triumvirate of forum temples: the shell of Juno, rustic Jupiter, Minerva so lovely in body & mind. They form a lasting image of Roman architecture in Africa in semi-ruinous/quite preserved harmony maybe more than any other. Walking from the gate they are in view...More

Rainy day around Tunis and looking for some thing new, even if somewhat old, Sbeitla looked just the ticket and with apple map directions via Tripadvisor set off. It may have helped to speak a little French, but Sbeitla is not behind a Tunis Suburb...More
