The Ruins of Timgad

Timgad or the ‘Pompeii of Africa’ was a prime military base in Algeria and a UNESCO world heritage site. It was set up under the administration of emperor Trajan in the first century AD.

Today, the famous Trajan Arch is one of the most prominent things standing tall at the site. Also, the site reveals the settlement pattern of the people that once lived there as there are still ruins of their churches, baths, theatre, residences, and libraries.
