Discover Roman ruins Algeria

The Roman ruins of Djemila, Timgad, Tipasa and Cherchell have been remarkably preserved and merit a proper visit. A trip to Tipasa, on the coastal road, 44 miles west of Algiers will mean both the discovery of the ruins there but also the chance to visit the beach. Djemila, 25 miles south-east of Sétif, is undoubtedly the most impressive site due to its mountain location. Timgad, east of Constantine, is worth visiting with the incredible architectural layout of this Roman town founded by the Trajan.

    Djemila, which in Arabic means 'the beautiful', is deserving of its name. Algeria is one of those countries where relics from the Roman Empire have been best preserved.
