Eastern baths, Maktar, Tunisia


The Eastern baths are among the finest in all of Tunisia, much due to the protection given over the centuries by the Byzantine fortifications which had been added.
Strolling around here is quite impressive, since walls stand really tall, many of the pillars are intact as well as several of the geometric mosaic floors.
