    They are located 2 km from the village of El Haouaria, by the sea, not far from the “real Cap-Bon”, this “finger” pointing towards Europe and which draws the southern edge of the Strait of Sicily through which passes most of the navigation in the Mediterranean.

    These are sandstone quarries exploited as early as the Punic period in the 7th and 6th centuries BC, but more intensely in the Roman period. This stone was used in Antiquity in the construction of coastal towns and their main monuments, in particular the capital: Carthage.


    The “monument” is in the form of a succession of “rooms”, in fact excavations “hollowed out” by a narrow opening that sinks into the depths of the site, leaving a pyramidal-shaped space.

    On the surface, at the top of the promontory that juts out towards the sea, next to the openings that give access to the deposit, there are also traces of aerial exploitation of the site.
