Dougga is an extensive set of ruins of a Roman town and UNESCO World Heritage Site located in a beautiful rural setting in north-central Tunisia.
It is home to a remarkable group of public buildings, mostly from the 2nd and 3rd centuries, and is the best preserved example of an Africo-Roman town in North Africa.
Among its grounds are temples and sanctuaries, forums, public baths, theatre, amphitheatre, circus, market, public cisterns and fountains, etc. Private life is also well represented by large and small houses, shops, and mausolea.
Dougga’s isolated setting makes it easy to roam around but also means that round-trip transportation must be arranged.
