The panoramic view offers a captivating glimpse into the historical and archaeological wonders of Dougga, also known as "Thugga," an ancient city in Tunisia, North Africa. From a vantage point overlooking the sprawling archaeological site of Dougga, one can witness the remarkable vestiges of an ancient Roman city frozen in time. The ruins extend over a vast expanse of 65 hectares (160 acres), revealing the grandeur of a bygone era. In the foreground, ancient Roman columns, arches, and remnants of structures speak to the city's architectural magnificence. UNESCO's designation of Dougga as a World Heritage Site in 1997 underscores its significance as "the best-preserved Roman small town in North Africa." This recognition is well-deserved, given the city's size, the impeccable condition of its historical landmarks, and its multifaceted history spanning Numidian-Berber, Punic, ancient Roman, and Byzantine periods.Image ID#: 32809 / Category: Architecture, Travel / Price: 499$
