Chebba is a town in Tunisia

Near La Chebba, on the headland of Ras Kaboudia, are the remains of the ribat of Bordj Kjadidja, built on Byzantine foundations. This was one of a chain of similar forts built by the Abbasids along the coasts of the Sahel in the eighth century. The ancient settlement on this site was known as Caput Vada; the Byzantine general Belisarius landed here in 533 and went on to inflict a devastating defeat on the Vandals.
