“Algiers the White" - A Mediterranean dream city with a turbulent history

Once a Phoenician commercial outpost during the Antiquity, Algiers is a city that runs along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea. It has an interesting history, and you can see the different influences from when under the Spanish, then the Ottoman and then especially the French rules, respectively.

The Turks played a major part in developing the city, as you can see by the Ottoman palaces and ancient mosques. The harbour was established by the infamous pirate Barbarossa.

From the seafront, the Place des Martyrs seems lined with rows of buildings influenced by French architecture, and people enjoy taking walks in the wide French-built boulevards.

You can see the mix of sophisticated apartments and elegant villas, terraces, beautiful shops, Socialist-era monuments and public buildings, and an enduring Islamic core concealed in the steep, hillside Casbah.
