Bulla Regia, a unique Roman town with houses with major rooms

underground, some of them still with their beautiful figurative mosaic floors.

With walls and ceilings still complete you can get a very good idea of the

space used by the Roman occupants to get away from the heat of the African

sun. Chemtou, Roman settlement, with famous red marble quarries,

exploited by Numidians and Romans. The slave camp used by the workers is

visible from the hill-top sanctuary, and there is also an extensive but very

ruinous nearby town, with a bridge across the Medjerda River. An excellent

site museum tells the story of the settlement.
