Tamuda Archaeological Museum

The ruins of Tamuda will enchant lovers of archaeology. The history of the site covers several distant periods, from early Antiquity to the fall of the Roman Empire. Founded by the Mauritanians in the third century BC, the town was considered to be the ancestor of Tétouan. Its life was particularly agitated. It was destroyed and rebuilt several times, with successive invasions.

The ruins you can admire today are those of the imposing fortified Roman camp which replaced the town in the second century AD. Excavations have found several coloured ceramics from that period. It is well worth gong to the Tétouan archaeological museum after your visit.
