The old port 

This port is located in a depression between the hills of Sidi Jabeur and the Borj El Kebir on the south coast of the peninsula of Mahdia. So the site is protected from the north winds and it opens with deep water. Recent research has led to say that the old port is carved into the rock and date of the Punic period. It was used as a trading post and naval base until the Ottoman period (about the middle of the XVIIIth) surface is 8250m2. Its original depth exceeds 10m. It can hold 30 boats at a time. The trace of the walls that surround it is still visible to the naked eye and the two warriors who monitor its input.
