  • An earthquake just with what's left of this archaeological site of the Roman Empire when it grew across Northern Africa. Pity because apart from the earthquake they committed some sins ... supplementing with mud-brick arches and pilasters. Took pity the State of the site. Is to make matters worse they contabandearam several pillars for a patio next to the mausoleum of the father of the King who is in Rabat a town a few dozen kilometres away. But still worth a visit, to see the extent of the Roman Empire when a took your culture costumes ... modernity and your different urbanization mode ...
