Algiers Guide

Algiers is the capital city of Algeria and is situated on the Mediterranean coast. Found in the north-central area of the country, Algeria’s largest city sits on the west side of a Mediterranean bay. The North African country has a variety of beautiful landscapes, from stunning beaches with picturesque coastal towns, to the spectacular Sahara Desert, which makes up 85% of the country.

The French-African city boasts a large number of museums thanks to the rich history and diverse culture of the area and also has the nickname of ‘Alger la Blanch’ (Algiers the White) due to the stunning setting of gleaming white buildings rising from the sea. The local architecture is a standout feature with the Kasbah quarter containing a mix of squares, mosques and cathedrals from the Islamic and Roman Catholic influences which have gripped the city over different periods.

The Port of Algiers stretches ten miles across the Bay of Algiers and is arguably the most important seaport in North Africa. The port area itself has a number of attractions to keep you occupied while you wait for the ferry. There's a fascinating 17th Century Kasbah by the terminal, which was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1992.

The terminal is easily accessible from transport links with Algiers Train Station just a short walk away and the N11, Rue d’Angkor linking the port to major road networks. The port runs ferries to Marseille in the south of France and Alicante in Spain, with a handful of long distance services a week.

The city is the capital of the autonomous region of Catalonia and is the second largest city in Spain, after Madrid. The city's origins date back to when it was founded as a Roman city and then in the Middle Ages it became the capital of the County of Barcelona. Today, the city is a very popular tourist destination and cultural centre and is particularly well known for the architectural works of Antoni Gaudi and Lluis Domenech i Montaner, which have been declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Also in the city the Fundació Joan Miró, Picasso Museum and Fundació Antoni Tàpies hold important collections of these world famous artists, as well as Can Framis Museum, which focuses on post 1960 Catalan Art owned by Fundació Vila Casas.
