I love going to Tipaza, amazing country side scenes, charming roman ruins right on a magical water front, i highly recommend swinging by to the Royal Mausoleum of Mauretania (tomb chritian)

We visited Tipasa Archaeological Park in February, 2012, in the company of a guide organised by our hotel. We were very impressed with this park which is an ancient Roman settlement which a mindboggling array of facilities and functions- it is really big, well preserved and gives one a good idea of life in a Roman settlement. We were amazed by the excellent condition of the structures and the layout. The coastal setting is beautiful. The only drawback was that we are English speakers, our guide spoke very little English and there were no English language guidebooks available. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I went in and had a rush the minute i got there. I love history I love roman ruins and I like to relive their lives and imagine the way their villages were,

This was the first time I visited a roman city in algeria , it is amazing how similar and different roman cities an be ! the rocks used for building are different from those in syria and jordan , and the views of this roman city are magnificent ! it has a sea view and hills around!

I wanted to know more about it, it is a shame that they did not have any brochures or any information packs to know more about it .

i like how modern art is present there too, they transformed dead trees into beautiful a art display.

go there and then get out to the main street to a place called le dauphin to have the freshest seafood ever! :D

From the moment you enter the site (for the very cheap sum of 20 Dinars (about 20 cents euro), you are thrown back in time. The site is extremely well maintained and the structures are in amazing condition given their age. Many of the structures still have doorways and windows that you can walk/look through. Streets from the town are still visible with the cobbled road ways of the east/west road very much in place and able to walk across.

The coliseum is the first big structure you come to. Compared to other coliseums it is small but still grand in so far as how much of the structure is still in place.
Take a stroll down the north/south road to the (now) waterfront and experience some of the houses still with original mosaic floors.

On the other side of the road are some baths that you can see how the structures were built and how they functioned (drainage and where the water came in). There is even remnants of a fresco on the walls of one of the baths (pictured).

The christian church is up on a hill (very easy stroll to get to) and is extremely impressive in terms of its size. The cemetery around and behind the christian church has many coffin/sarcophagi in great condition (grave robbers have long since stolen any of the remains and lids).

My final structure to visit was the theatre which you could almost envisage being used today. All it really needs is a wooden floor.
