Algeria's history is extremely rich and has kept many relics of the various civilisations that have prospered there. One of the most remarkable vestiges left from the passage of time is the architectural legacy left by the Romans. It is the result of five centuries of Roman domination which started in 46 AD, leaving a rich tapestry of artwork, architecture and mosaics. Our itinerary focuses on some of the Unesco World Heritage Sites that Algeria boasts.
Travelling from one wonderful region to another we discover some of the most interesting archaeological sites remaining in the Mediterranean and Northern African areas.
