Timgad, nicknamed the "Pompeii of North Africa", is an ancient city located on the territory of the eponymous commune of Timgad, in the wilaya of Batna in the Aurès region, northeastern Algeria.

It was founded by the Roman emperor Trajan in 100 and endowed with the status of colony. This is the last "colony deduction" in Roman Africa, i.e. a colony populated mainly by Roman citizens (often former Roman soldiers). Built with its temples, baths, forum and theater, the city, initially with an area of 12 hectares, ended up occupying more than 90. Due to its excellent state of conservation and the fact that it was considered typical of a Roman city, Timgad was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982. However, the conservation of the site raises a number of problems.
