The Arena at Carthage Where Sts. Perpetua and Felicity Were Martyred
In the photo is Vatican Radio's own senior correspondent Mr. Christopher Wells, kneeling in humble prayer.
Inside is an old chapel, with this targa on the wall. Holy Mass has likely not been celebrated here since the French Protectorate ended in 1956. The French arrived in 1881 and likely built this little chapel at that time, located in the center of the old arena.
To get here, take a taxi from downtown Tunis. Otherwise, it is too distant to walk. It is located near the World War II Allied Cemetery. Just tell the driver you want to see the Roman Amphitheatre of Carthage.
