The city

 

The city of Tlemcen is situated in the northwest of Algeria, close to the Moroccan border and approximately 60 kilometres away from the Mediterranean Sea. Its name derives from the Berber word for ‘water spring‘. Its pleasant climate and Mediterranean flair, proximity to the sea, and cultural diversity makes it an attractive city for visitors. Centuries of rich history and culture have made the city a centre of a unique blend of music and art. Tlemcen’s textiles and handicrafts, its elegant blend of Arabic, Islamic, Berber, and Andalusian cultures, and its cool climate in the mountains have made it an important centre for tourism in Algeria. In 2011, Tlemcen was voted the capital of Islamic culture. Tlemcen has an international airport in the nearby town of Zenata.
