GIGHTIS
Temple of Serapis and Isis
Gightis, Tunisia


Gightis, Tunisia


The Temple of Serapis and Isis is the single best preserved structure at Gightis. Its platform of red sandstone rises above the ground as it always has, and there are bases for 6 of the columns (photo below).
The temple overlooks both the Forum as well as the sea, and the areas of the former port, originally with a 140 metre long jetty.
