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.
