SIRESSI
City
Siressi, Tunisia

Up from the Capitol and what is believe to be the theatre, lies a section of temple buildings. The caretaker was not all sure about their purposes, and it isn't hard to understand why. A line of cells with openings towards the street does not suggest one larger temple structure. The rooms are too small to have housed families, so they must either have been a series of small temples or larger shops.
The nicest temple does not lie down here, however, but about a kilometre away, on the hilltop.
