The town of Sbietla has one major claim to fame, the roman city of Sufetula. As with many roman towns in Tunisia it started life as a Numidian settlement. The romans started here arouns the 1st century AD by the 2nd century Sufetula was at the height of its prosperity due to its olives. By the 4th century it was an important centre of Christianity. Im 647 AD it was taken by the Arabs. The centere piece of the site is the 3 main temples. The tempels of Minvera, Jupiter and Juno are impressive. The Theatre has had some obvious recent restoration but gives a good idea of what it may have looked like.
