Tipasa

 

Tipasa is a charming port city on the Mediterranean coast of Algeria, west of Algiers.

The town is best known as the home of three archeological sites in the area that together form a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Tipasa was an ancient Punic trading-post conquered by Rome and turned into a strategic base for the conquest of the kingdoms of Mauritania.

Tipasa played the role of a maritime port of call and a place for commercial exchanges with the indigenous population. Numerous and diverse necropolis testify to the varied types of burial and funerary practices reflecting the multicultural exchanges of the time.

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.

Cultural
Historic Landmarks
Tipasa remains today a charming old port city. While the major historical landmarks of ruins of the Roman Empire are primarily located in the archeological parks outside of town, Tipasa retains a historic feel in a scenic city.
Combination
Archeological Sites
Tipasa comprises three sites: two archaeological parks located in the vicinity of the present urban complex and the Royal Mauritanian Mausoleum, on the west Sahel plateau of Algiers, 11 km southeast of Tipasa. The site comprises a unique group of Phoenician, Roman, palaeochristian and Byzantine ruins alongside indigenous monuments such as the Kbor er Roumia, the great royal mausoleum of Mauretania.

The impressive ruins of the civic buildings are set in the heart of a dense network of private houses (many decorated with paintings and mosaics), commercial warehouses, and industrial establishments of the 2nd and 3rd centuries.
