Aside from the immense history at this site, it is very beautiful and surrounded by the old medina walls. It was a pleasure to walk around the area on a Sunday afternoon. It's very relaxing and has a zen feel about it. It's also inexpensive and easily accessible.

Touring the Roman ruins was neat, but certainly accentuated by the sound of the storks with their funny cry. Lovely little nooks in the shade that are perfect for a picnic!
