Tipaza or Tipasa is 70 km from Algiers. It is a Punic settlement by the sea. Although not much remains, it is still very impressive. It was once a walled city with 2.2 km of city walls. The walk can be very hard and risky...More

Very extensive ancient Roman community. It truly captures the flavor of Roman life around the time of birth of Christ. Highly encourage a person to hire a guide as he can really bring life the ruins. Well worth the time and has beautiful views.

Founded by the Phoenicians, Tipasa was taken over by the Roman and Byzantine empires because of its strategic location. Must see! Added to Unesco World Heritage List in 1982. Many remains that witness the former greatness.
