OVERVIEW

Set out to visit Tiddis ,one of the underrated Roman ruins located in the northwest of Algeria, in the province of Constantine.

The city was founded as a military outpost in the 3rd century and built on a hillside overlooking Constantine from a certain vantage point to defend the city against invaders. Upon your arrival, you can see a beautiful scenery of landscapes and a striking red earth with a magnificent hillock in which the site is located. We start our tour from a group of circular tombs known as Bazinas, some which are pre-Roman and then we continue up to the main entrance of the town through a massive gate  with the Arch of Memmius where we can see different types of sanctuaries of the Roman gods such as Ceres, Vesta and Mithra. We can also see a Christian Church and baptisteries. A great number of cisterns scattered around the area including a massive Water tank on the upper part of the site with three large basins which basically proves that they had problems with water supply. We can also see on the lower side a large Villa of Mosaics with the remains of an olive press, and baths that were later used as a pottery.
