Once a Roman colonia in the Roman province of Mauretania Caesariensis in northwestern Africa, before it was declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 2002.
The city was originally founded in 1857 and was called Tipasa back then. During this time Tipasa was a small city full of a group of western Semitic-speaking people that originated from Carthage in North Africa. The origin of these settlers can be traced back to a group of Phoenician settlers, but also to North African Berbers.
This ancient city was shattered into pieces in 430 AD by a group of eastern Germanic tribes, but was rebuilt one century later by Byzantines. The Arabs then later destroyed the city again at the end of the seventh century. This singular action of the Arabs left the city in ruins until the nineteenth century. The modern day Tipasa is of great significance tourist destination in Algeria and now home to about thirty thousand (30,000) inhabitants. Tipasa is just about 70 km west of the country’s capital, Algiers. This coastal city is also known for its sandy beach which is a very good tourism destination as well.
