Ain Tounga
Smashed theatre
Ain Tounga, Tunisia

Ain Tounga has what must be considered as one of the most destroyed theatres in Tunisia. The only part in good condition is the outer walls, which intrigues by being crudely made but having survived almost two milennias.
Seats are almost all gone, and the scene contains only bits and pieces of the original columns.
