 The Touristic Visit (October 22nd)

The touristic visit will include several archaeological, touristic and natural sites in the Guelma area at some 120km East of Constantine. We will follow the East-West highway, then branch out towards Guelma via Oued Cherchar.

It will consist of:

- Lunch will be taken at the ancient Roman city (20 km from Guelma), followed by a relaxation break. 

- Visit to the underground lake of Bir Ben Osmane, near Guelma, at a distance of some 4 km from the thermal complex of Hammam Debagh

- Finally, a visit to the Hammam Debagh site with its hot geysers at 100 C ° where eggs can be cooked in less than 5mn!

We will be accompanied during the whole visit by a tourist guide affiliated with the Ministry of Culture. The return to Constantine is scheduled around 17:30
