Ain Tounga
Baths, not a church
Ain Tounga, Tunisia


Ain Tounga, Tunisia


It looks like a church, with its columned basilica and apses at either end. But it is a bath, something that the heating system in the ground really reveals. According to the guardian, the southern part was at Byzantine times transformed into an olive press.
