OUDNA
Houses and more baths
Oudna, Tunisia


Oudna, Tunisia


Being designed to endure water and heavy use, it is not surprising that baths have fared better than most houses at Oudna, just like anywhere else in Tunisia. The top photo, however, shows a wealthy mansion where walls still stand almost a metre high.
The lower photo is another bath, which has a nice pool with much of the original mosaics still intact.
