The Baths of Antoninus in Carthage

Published : 13-10-2018

TunisiaTourismTV – In Roman times, the ancient city of Carthage housed a monumental thermae complex: the Baths of Antoninus. Their remains are some of the most impressive of the archaeological site – a UNESCO World Heritage site.
The Baths of Antoninus were particularly remarkable due to their opulence and their size (close to 300 metres in length). A few columns from the upper level have been preserved; one of them, 15 metres high, supported an arch with a peak height of 30 metres. The lower level consisted of spaces for relaxation and service.
