MUSTI
The tiniest Roman ruins
Musti, Tunisia


Musti, Tunisia


Musti is neglected by most tour groups and individual travellers. Still it is too easy to locate and explore to be overlooked. Musti lies on the edge of the road between Le Kef and Dougga, with a triumphal arch on one side and the temples and a fortress on the other.
The history of Musti is not of great importance, it was secondary to other larger Roman cities of the region, like Maktar and Ha´dra. Yet, the excavation performed here is very nicely done. Look out for the ancient olive presses.
