Algeria History

Ever since one of the 20 companions of Hercules founded a trading centre here, Algeria has been rocked by rebellion and warfare.

After more than a century of rule by France, Algerians fought through much of the 1950s to achieve independence in 1962.

News From Algeria:
Disturbing massacres are full of contradictions. The CNN anchor has a hard time with the Algerian minister, who accuses Amnesty International of inflating the figures and not knowing the full story.

Algeria Landscape

Algeria travel may not be an option on many travel agent's itineraries, but people are always curious about the place.

At the end of the 1980's many travellers still enjoyed the Peugeot run to West Africa by way of Algeria, or came across the desert on motorbikes.

Not any more; even the Paris-Dakar has avoided this country in North Africa.

Algeria Language and Culture

Arabic is the official language of Algeria although French is widely spoken. In the Kabylia region Berber is more prominent.

Algeria Traditions and Customs

Algeria is a Muslim country and it's not wise to joke about Islam.
