From the ancient Roman temples of Bulla Régia and Dougga..
The Bulla Régia site is located south-west of Tunis, in the middle valley of the Medjerda. To get there, we leave at 07:30 from your hotel in Hammamet or Tunis. The Medjerda, although having its source in the Algerian Constantinois, is the only long perennial watercourse in Tunisia since over 460 km of course, it flows over 350 km in Tunisia before going to
throw in the Mediterranean, in the Gulf of Tunis.
Bulla Régia is an ancient city, whose Berber origins probably predate its Punic culture. Probably invested by Roman troops at the end of the Second Punic War, the city was once the Numidian capital before returning under the direct control of Rome. There followed a period of Romanization and development until the end of the 4th century. The city will begin to decline with the advent of the Vandal kingdom and then under the domination of the Byzantine Empire.
Lunch in Dougga before visiting the archaeological site.
Dougga is also an old African city which gradually became Romanized. The site presents many vestiges of the various periods of occupation of the city, with in particular the presence of dolmens. A Libyco-Punic mausoleum is one of the rare examples of Numidian royal architecture
The so-called bazina tombs are circular monuments, also from the Numidian period. Numerous burials from the Roman period, as well as the hypogeum, have been uncovered on the site. There are political buildings like the arches or the forum. The leisure buildings are well represented by the theatre, the auditorium, the circus, the thermal baths… The capitol and many temples pay homage to the many divinities of the Roman world. The relative poverty of the vestiges of the Christian era – the church of Victoria, a small martyrial church, is the only Christian building revealed by the excavations – seems to attest that the city experienced an early decline.
