THUBURBO MAJUS
House of Neptune
Thuburbo Majus, Tunisia


Thuburbo Majus, Tunisia


The House of Neptune is noted for its vast rooms of excellent mosaics. It is naturally closed for entry, but everything can be enjoyed from short distance at all sides.
According to my guide, the lower photo shows two fish, which was the symbol of Neptune. Thuburbo Majus is about 50 km from the ocean.
