Roma Site in Tunisia
Dougga is an ancient Roman city in northern Tunisia, included in a 65 hectare archaeological site.
UNESCO qualified Dougga as a World Heritage Site in 1997, believing that it represents a??the best-preserved Roman small town in North Africaa??.
The site, which lies in the middle of the countryside, has been protected from the encroachment of modern urbanization.
Douggaa??s size, its well-preserved monuments and its rich Numidian-Berber, Punic, ancient Roman and Byzantine history make it exceptional. Amongst the most famous monuments at the site are a Libyco-Punic Mausoleum, the capitol, the theatre, and the temples of Saturn and of Juno Caelestis
