See the final resting place of queen Cleopatra Selene II and Berber king Juba II at Tombeau de la Chretienne. The daughter of Cleopatra and Marc Anthony lies buried on the top of a hill, inside a stone tomb reminiscent of the Greek ones built in the same period in Egypt. From the outside, observe the geometry of the site, with its square base, circular structure, and the top in the shape of a pyramid, all complemented with 60 Ionic pillars. Inside, you'll see the two chambers with stone doors. Add Tombeau de la Chretienne and other attractions to your Tipasa Province trip itinerary using our Tipasa Province travel route builder tool .
