Le complexe hydraulique romain de Zaghouan-Carthage
Le complexe hydraulique romain de Zaghouan-Carthage is part of the Tentative list of Tunisia in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.
The Roman hydraulic complex of Zaghouan-Carthage supplied Carthage with water. At a total length of 132 km (including tributary channels), it was amongst the longest aqueducts in the Roman Empire. It is considered a masterpiece of Roman engineering: it was constructed in a way that the water travelled by force of gravity alone and used hills in the landscape.
