Kasserine, also known as Cillium, is a city in central Tunisia with several Ancient Roman monuments and ruins.
Founded in approximately the second century AD, Kasserine became a Roman colonia known as Colonia Cillilana or just Cillium.
Just west of the main city of Kasserine, visitors can see the remains of this city, including a large ancient theatre which is carved out of the hillside, a triumphal arch and several fallen columns.
Set slightly further away from the rest of the ancient ruins, and just off the main road, is the impressive Mausoleum of the Flavii, a huge looming three-story tower-mausoleum.
Cillium is a quiet site with few people making the effort to visit the remains, particularly given the proximity of better-preserved Roman sites, such as Sbeïtla, nearby.
Just as empires rise and fall so do entry fees and opening hours! While we work as hard as we can to ensure the information provided here about Kasserine is as accurate as possible, the changing nature of certain elements mean we can't absolutely guarantee that these details won't become a thing of the past.
