KERKOUANE
Private baths

Kerkouane, Tunisia


Kerkouane is noted for its lack of public baths. Just like it is with the modern world, baths were private and part of a family's house.
There are several really nice examples to this, with bathtubs often made by a red or pink plaster or a sort of cement.
Should you visit Hammamet before or after Kerkouane, check out Sebastian's Villa and its baths.
