Silversea Expedition Cruises À BEJAIA

BEJAIA

Situated between the sea, a cape and a mountain, Bejaïa is one of Algeria’s prettiest cities. With a population of about 200,000 it is also the capital of Bejaïa province. The old town lies on the slopes of Mount Gouraya descending to the French sector along the sea. Main landmarks include a 16th-century mosque, a Spanish fortress, also from the 16th century, and an old Kasbah. The history of Bejaïa can be traced to the founding by the Carthaginians in the 1st century BC. View more

From the 2nd to the 5th centuries the town was under Roman rule and flourished as a commercial and military center called Saldae. In the 12th century, Bejaïa became the capital of the Berber Hammadid dynasty only to be annexed one hundred years later into the Hafsid Empire of Tunis. During the Middle Ages, Bougie, as the town was known then, was a favorite pirate stronghold. Later followed a succession of Spanish and Ottoman rulers. In 1833, when the French occupied Algeria, Bejaïa declined as Algiers had become the preferred port. A project in the early 1900s to improve the harbor and the construction of an oil pipeline in 1959 regained Bejaïa’s former importance and made it a leading port for oil transported from the oil fields at Hassi Messauoud. After long and fierce battles, independence from France was achieved in July 1962. Algeria has three languages – Arabic, French and Amazigh (the Berber language). While French has long been used in universities, research and journalism, Arabic is more and more taking the place of French. Guests are advised that in order to go ashore in this port, participation in one of the organized tours is required. This regulation is waived for guests who come provided with their own individual Algerian visa. Pier Information The ship is scheduled to dock at the port of Bejaïa. Distance to the town center is approximately 500 yards. Metered taxis are generally available at the pier gate, though English-speaking drivers are not easy to find. Shopping Pottery, traditional dress, carpets, jewelry and local handicrafts make for genuine Algerian souvenirs. Carpet patterns are distinct according to regions. Price and quality vary accordingly. State run shops, offering, a wide range of handicrafts and souvenirs, are a good place for comparative pricing. Store hours are normally from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The local currency is the dinar. Cuisine Fresh seafood, lamb dishes and couscous are found on most menus. The best choice is at one of the more upscale hotels. Other Sites Attractions in and around Bejaia are covered in the organized shore excursions. Private arrangements are only possible (subject to availability) for guests who are in possession of an individual Algerian visa.
