Discover El-Jem Tunisia

The El-Djem Coliseum, an immense relic of the Roman Empire, was built between 230 and 240 AD. Erected in the city of El-Djem (also known as Thysdrus, its Latin name), one of the most prosperous in Roman Africa at the peak of the Empire's glory, this coliseum was roughly 100 ft high with a capacity of over 20,000 spectators. It is one of the last Roman amphitheatres and one of the last to have kept its lion's den which is still visible today.
