Friguia park is very easy to get to although I usually go from Sousse heading north. So from Tunis to Sousse take the motorway (A1) take the Enfidha/Kairouan exit, (itâ€™s abut 12kms from the exit to the park) and then head towards Tunis on the GP1 (old main road). It's only about 15/20 minutes from Hammamet.
Check out following link for review that I did after my first visit there.
These baths were once the very largest in the Roman empire. The main pool was as big as an Olympic pool. The curved public latrines were at first take for a theatre.
Very little of the upper structures remain, but the lower halls are so huge and extensive that it is hard not be amazed.
The baths were constructed from 145 to 165 CE, and is perhaps the best illustration as to how rich and wealthy Carthage was during the Roman era. They were the largest in North Africa, and third largest in the whole Roman world.
The entire structure was rich in functions: Frigidarium (cold bath), caldarium (hot room), tepidarium (hot bath), destrictarium (warmed cleaning room), laconium (sauna) and a palaestra (an open exercise yard).
Due to being so low compared to the sea, the heating and service areas were built above ground.
Roulla, the pictures of the greek orthodox church in Tunis are lovely. My friend and I might go to Tunis when we go over in...4WEEKS today... We fancy doing a little exploring of places we hav'nt yet been. I will put this church on our list of places to visit.

This is a photo of a 1920's train that runs through the Atlas mountains in southern Tunisia, it was a gift to the president from France.
The action takes place in the south of the country. A group is to cross the Great Canyon of the Sahara Atlas Mountains. It is a travel second to none and it becomes available thanks to the legendary “Red Lizard” — passenger train of the 19th cent., the interior and atmosphere of which has been preserved up to nowadays.
The train consists of several types of wagons designed for different social layers. In the wagons for engineers there are red plush divans, leather arm-chairs, nice pictures in open-work frames and even French porcelain lavatory pans painted with forget-me-nots. And in the wagons for workers there are rudely built benches only and special hooks for instruments and tools.
The train starts from the town of Metlaoui which was founded on the base of the phosphate quarry but nowadays all the resources of this deposit has been exhausted. The train moves to the station of Selja — to the still working quarry. The average time in the way is 1,5 hours, the average speed is 40 km per hour.
Hi Roulla, hope you and your family are also well, as me and mine are.. I know what you mean about the church. I too find them very peaceful places just to sit and contemplate, when outside life goes on at a hectic pace.
The Cathedral of St Vincent de Paul is a Roman Catholic cathedral in Tunis. It is named in honour of Saint Vincent de Paul, a priest sold into slavery in Tunis, who after being freed took an interest in helping Christian slaves in the area. The church was built in 1882 in a mixture of styles, including Moorish, Gothic, and Byzantine.
The cathedral is situated in the Place de l'Independence in the Ville Nouvelle.
