It is, therefore, a very high recommendation of Dougga that the trip was worth every bit of the stress of getting there and back. I'll go again with my next visitors. Dougga is the best preserved example of an Afro-Roman town in existence. Covering 65 hectares, it would take at least three hours to walk the whole town.

|A small part of the town. It really wouldn't take much to make this habitable|
The settlement was built on a steep hillside, looking down over what is still very fertile farmland. There are numerous springs on site, making it ideal for both security and comfort. Walking around we saw temples, public baths, the amphitheatre, a market, public cisterns and fountains, houses, shops, andmuch we didn't understand.
