The tomb isolated in the mountain hill, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea! The view is great! You won’t neglect it whenever driving along the highway. The tomb is for Berber king and daughter of Egyptian Christian (cleopatra), which describes the interesting mixture of cultures. It surely...More

Interesting ancient Roman Mausoleum. Recommend having a tour guide take you there. Not a lot of signs or posters explaining the site. The guide was well worth it.

Beautiful place to watch the sunset after a day at Tipaza Ruins and/or the beach. You can't go inside but it's for sure a highlight if you're headed anywhere nearby.

When visiting Tipaza make a little detour to the monument but beware, it closes early. The structure is significant and maintenance is adequate. It was one of the cleaner locations we visited and Tipaza warrants several hours in the ruins by the sea. Tip the...More

Confusing name for a historic place. Nothing Christian about it. Tomb of Cleopatra's and Marc Anthony's daughter who was also named Cleopatra and was married to Numidian King Juba II whose fame was subject of Pliny's and Plutarch's writings. Nice place to visit.

A pyramid dedicted to a Mauretanean queen, I think, who ruled the north-west of the Maghreb. There is an area where you can park your vehicle providing some money. You can find there restaurants and cafés.
