Olive press
Sbeitla, Tunisia

Sbe´tla has the best preserved olive press from Tunisia's Roman era. Parts of the press itself are in good condition, together with the building.
It is really no big surprise that Sbe´tla has been able to provide such a fine olive press, olives were the true foundation of the city and its wealth.
