SBE¤TLA
The Bridge
The Brdige, Sbe´tla, Tunisia

The Roman bridge crossing the seasonal river may have served as a aqueduct; there is spring on the other side of the river, which has excellent water quality and is pumped directly to Sfax.
The bridge has been extensively restored, and is used even in modern times.
