Timgad Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
The region was a fertile agricultural area, lying 1,000 metres above sea level, with plenty of water running down from the mountainous hinterland and agriculture was the main source of income for the city.
Although the Roman city has been sacked several times by the Berbers, there is still a good deal to see here. A lot of Timgad is therefore in perfect condition. At least all that is below half a metre high. Some high constructions, like the theatre and Trajan's Arch still stand. The theatre is used for happenings up to this very day.
