Welcome to Gafsa


Gafsa is historically significant as the site of Capsa, which was captured and destroyed by the Roman consul Marius in 107 BC as part of the campaign against the Numidian king Jugurtha. It went on to become an important Roman town; the Roman pools in the centre of the city are Gafsa's main attraction.
