Full-Day Tour to Zaghouan from Tunis
Depart from Tunis and visit the aqueduct (13 mi/22 km from Tunis). Sitting at a height of 984 ft/300 m on Jebel Zaghouan,
Proceed to Zaghouan, the site where Hamilcar (father of Hannibal) defeated the mercenaries rebelling against Carthage after the first Punic war. Carthage was defeated by the Romans in 241 B.C. and was forced to pay a heavy war tribute to Rome. Visit the Temple des Eaux. This once grand semi-round temple is built close to the city, over the springs of Zaghouan. It might have been constructed around the time when the Emperor Hadrian ordered the building of the aqueducts to Carthage. Its main room above the spring was, without doubt, dedicated to one of the many gods of water.
After Lunch, departure for a stroll through Zaghouan’s charming old quarter. The narrow streets and the architecture testify to the Andalucian influence on the city.
