Algeria’s second city is a lively port with loads of history. Founded by Moorish Andalusian traders in AD 937, the city has long been in existence and now due to its position on the coast has developed into a town with thriving trade industries and has established strong business ties with Spain.

Admire the imposing French colonial-era architecture of the public buildings, wander down to the port and watch giant containers being unloaded and then if your curiosity has got the better of you, stroll down the winding back lanes where boys kick footballs and washing flutters from little balconies.

Just a short trip from the hustle and bustle of city life, you will find miles of beautiful sand and refreshing sea water.
