  Going down into the cisterns
by grets

Underneath the Forum are Africa's largest cisterns, a big complex of 15 cisterns, six metres deep, with six million cubic metres of water arriving through an aquduct from springs some 25 km away from the city.

Steps lead down into the cisterns, but I would not recommend entring if you suffer from claustrofobia.
