"Roman wall" Top 5 Page for this destination Douz Off The Beaten Path Tip by JLBG

Douz Off The Beaten Path: 14 reviews and 14 photos


This picture, with one of us walking in the (ex)covered way shows the size of the structure. Once home, I made some research and finally found that this wall was what limited the Roman Empire towards the South and was designed to prevent looters to ruin the wealthy Roman Africa !
You can find more recent pictures (2002) of the wall on my Tunisia page under "off the beaten path"

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
