Archeological Public Museum of Cherchell

Our journey begins at 9:00 am sharp, right from the hotel reception. Your driver will be there to take you away on a 1.5-hour drive to Cherchell. Once there, you'll be greeted by your local guide, ready to show you around. We kick off our visit by exploring the ancient museum located in the esplanade, famously known as "Martyrs' Square". Here, you'll discover an impressive array of statues, mosaics, funerary tombs, and relics that offer a fascinating glimpse into the history of Cherchell.

El Rahman Mosque

After that we'll head across the national road to catch a glimpse of the unique architecture of El Rahman Mosque. Its design, reminiscent of an ancient temple with Ionic capitals, adds to the charm of Cherchell's landscape.

Roman Ruins of Cherchell

After our visit to Martyrs' Square and El Rahman Mosque, we'll venture south through the charming alleys of Cherchell. Along the way, we'll discover the Roman Grand theater and Forum, offering insight into the town's rich history and architectural wonders.

Tipaza Roman Ruins

After our time in Cherchell, we'll embark on a short 30-minute ride to explore the captivating Tipaza Roman ruins, designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Nestled on the Mediterranean coast, these ancient ruins offer a glimpse into the vibrant history of Tipasa of Mauretania, founded by Phoenician sailors in the fifth century B.C. As we arrive, we'll be greeted by the breathtaking sight of Roman structures overlooking the sparkling sea and the majestic Mount Chenoua in the distance. Wander through the ruins to discover the amphitheater, Cardo Maximus, forum, ancient port, capitol, theater, villas, and other public buildings, each bearing witness to the city's former glory. Marvel at the well-preserved mosaics, sculptures, and architectural marvels that provide a window into life in an ancient Roman town over two millennia ago. Conclude our visit at the circular necropolis, reflecting on the enduring legacy of this remarkable UNESCO-recognized archaeological site.

Lunch

Then your guide will take you to a seafood restaurant renowned for its local fish, freshly caught from the beaches of Tipaza. After enjoying a delicious meal and soaking in the coastal atmosphere, we'll continue our journey to explore the historic mausoleum before heading back to your hotel.

The Royal Mausoleum of Mauretania

Our final stop is the Royal Mausoleum of Mauretania, a magnificent ancient monument in Cherchell. Built over 2,000 years ago, it honors Queen Cleopatra Selene II and King Juba II. The mausoleum's impressive Roman architecture features intricate carvings and towering columns. We'll make a quick stop here for some photos before heading back to your hotel.
