OVERVIEW

Cherchell is a peaceful city that hides its treasures and history between the mountains and the sea, far from the major axes of the urban movements of modern Algeria. It offers rich and varied landscapes on fertile soil, a mild climate, healthy and refreshing in summer by the sea breeze. It lies on the littoral and occupies the site of an illustrious city "Caesarea".  It was for a long time the main attraction for Mediterranean sailors. It has a lovely public square overlooking the harbour containing lots of beautiful trees known as Phytolacca dioica.
From a certain vantage point on the road you can clearly see rubble of enormous aqueducts. Our visit begins with the ancient museum in the esplanade known as "Martyrs' Square" which houses a rich collection of statuary, mosaics, funerary tombs, relics and invites you on a journey into the history of Cherchell. Then we cross the national road from the esplanade where we can see the mosque of "El Rahman" of a somewhat unusual architecture that resembles an ancient temple with Ionic capitals, then we continue south through an alley of this small town to see the great theater and then the forum and we return by the national road to the door of Tenes and we end our visit by the great thermal baths of the West.

OVERVIEW

After lunch, we go straight to visit the Royal Mausoleum of Mauritania. It is a historical monument dating from the 3rd century BC with an enormous stone work, circular in shape, mysterious, majestic and endearing for its sober and grandiose beauty at 261 m altitude. Traditionally called "Kbour er Roumia", which is perhaps a false translation of "Tomb of the Christian", some attribute it to Juba II and his wife Cleopatra Selene, daughter of Mark Antony and the famous Queen of Egypt Cleopatra VII, others give it a later date.
