Testour is an ancient Numidian site named ‘Tichilla’ by Roman invaders. Like many Numidian sites, it is built on a hill for protection. Centuries after the Numidians,
Andalusian Muslim refugees evicted from Spain in the wake of the Christian conquest in the
1600s fled to Testour bringing with them rich Spanish history. These new Andalusian communities were renowned throughout North Africa for their commercial abilities and hard work. Over the years Testour has been occupied by Numidians, Romans, Andalusians, Jews and Muslims.
