Djémila

I've been here!

Situated 900 m above sea-level, Djémila, or Cuicul, with its forum, temples, basilicas, triumphal arches and houses, is an interesting example of Roman town planning adapted to a mountain location.

Trivia

  • At an altitude of 900mts above sea level, the ruins of this former city is a remarkable example of Roman architecture and town planning beautifully adapted to the mountainous terrain.
  • The name of the town in Roman times was Cuicul and was built as a military outpost on a site that back then provided all of the natural requirements. Slowly the greenery died out and the place became barren and lost its appeal.
  • The impressive layout of the ruined city also includes its own Senate and Forum!

Year of Inscription: 1982
