Arch of Septimius Severus

The entrance to the most beautiful archaeological site around the mediterrean sea

Detail of the Arch

The arch and it's four imposant corinthian pillars showing the successes of the Severan era. The interior shows historical scénes of military campaigns
It reminded me at the "Arch the Triomphe" in Paris . But it is still under renovation by Italian archeologic engineers. Many original statues and reliefs are to be seen in the National museum in Tripoli. A must to visit.

A view on the Bathing facilities

The Hadrianic Baths.The floor of the "caldarium" was heated by the passage of hot gasses through the spaces. The Romans had indirect radiant heating long before we did.

    One of the best preserved Roman cities. Too bad where its located is not exactly a friendly country to Americans, otherwise I'd go there.

    Another beautifull off the beaten path place. I wish be there before it would transform into something like "ancient Egypt".
