Dougga, Beja Governorate

Ramble through the deserted, cobblestoned streets of Dougga, the best-preserved Roman town in North Africa and a World Heritage Site. Perched on a rocky hilltop above fertile plains, this archeological site features not only an ancient Roman capitol with a large theater, but also the remains of earlier structures, including a Punic-Libyan mausoleum. The small town prospered under Roman and Byzantine rules, during which its wealthy residents built 20 temples, misleading scholars to believe that this was a major religious site. Notice the intricate floor mosaics and look for the remains of Roman baths, a circus, and two triumphal arches.

  • The most beautiful UNESCO-listed historic site. It is quite well preserved, where you can twist a vast historical layer that does not belong to the last century or even to the following centuries, the history of the Roman Empire is widely represented in Tunisia and deserves the detour , you can spend more than one time, because such buildings, as well as the number of objects gathered in the same place, you can not see as many! I recommend visiting it highly.
