History
The original coastal settlement was established by the Phoenicians as a trading center, and the remains of the necropolis from this period represent the oldest and most extensive of the Punic age. Tipaza was later taken over by the Romans, who used it as the beachhead from which to launch their campaign of conquest of the Mauritanian kingdoms.

The city has flourished under the Numidian king Juba II and became with Caesaria (currently Cherchell) one of the center of the Berber-Roman culture in North Africa.

In the 5th century, during the Vandal attacks, a large number of Tipaza inhabitants fled to Spain, while many of them were cruelly persecuted.
Tipaza revived for a brief time during the Byzantine occupation in the 6th century. It was given the Arabic language name, Tefassed, when Muslims arrived.
