El JEM

Considered the hallmark of Roman Tunisia, as well as the grandiose Zaghouan aqueduct, the amphitheater of El Jem goes, the eyes of the ancients and the moderns, for the most beautiful monument of ancient Africa.

The Arab historians and geographers of the Middle Ages ranked among the great wonders inherited from the past. But archaeologists and modern historians, the amphitheater of El Jem is, above all, an architectural and artistic heritage of the first magnitude that reflects the extraordinary rise of a city and a province that, for any time, was the scene of significant historical events.
To this end October 26, 1979, UNESCO inscribed on the World Heritage List.
