Korbous is Tunisia’s leading spa. The town huddles in a narrow valley opening on to the sea. Famous for its hot springs already frequented in Roman times, Korbous was known as Aquae Calidae Carpitanae.
In 1801, Ahmed Bey rediscovered these hot springs and established the spa, which was further developed by the French.
The water, with its calcium, sulfur and sulfates, is recommended for the treatment of skin conditions, affections of the respiratory passages, rheumatism and arthritis.
