Ha´dra, Tunisia

Ha´dra, Tunisia

Ha´dra, Tunisia

There are at Ha´dra three memorable mausoleums shaped as towers. Their location seems well-chosen, as if they are hulking over the river of Ha´dra, and rather isolated from the town.
The one which is nicknamed "With Portico" (two upper photos) is in excellent condition, withe four fine columns of the portico and well-preserved details beneath the roof.
The Hexagonal Mausoleum (two lower photos) is almost as nice, and may be entered, although there is no staircase leading to the top.
