These Roman ruins is some of the lesser-known in Algeria. The town was founded by the Roman military around 125 AD and once served as the capital of Roman Numidia. Today the ruin of the so-called praetorium dominates the site, but there are also temples, baths, arches, aqueducts, and an amphitheater, which could hold up to 12,000 spectators. Over time the site has been victim of quarrying, where stones were removed and reused for building the modern village and the prison nextdoor. There is no entrance fee and it's best to access the site from the main road, not the village.
