Archway at Souar

Souar is a tiny village off the Tunis to Kairouan road. It isn’t marked on any of the maps. As always in Tunisia, spelling varies and it can also be spelt Soiar or Siwar.

Souar is one of a series of small settlements built above the road along the spring line. It is a lovely site at the base of the mountains with a few houses scattered over the landscape with a small school next to the Roman remains of Abthugnos. There are no signs or information. All that is left is a paved forum with steps up to the remains of the Capitol on a huge plinth with the remains of underground rooms underneath. Opposite the capitol, an offset archway leads to another paved area with the remains of a few walls.

The archway has been restored/stabilized recently and scaffolding is up round part of the Capitol.
