Forum and Basilica
Basilica, Chemtou, Tunisia

The best reconstructed part of Chemtou are the forum and basilica. The focus of the Forum is a round structure with subterranean rooms around it. For some it will be a problem that new and old stones are hard to distinguish from each other.
The basilica is best enjoyed from a little distance. Closer up there is little to investigate.
