Overlooking the Mediterranean Sea, Algiers has a long history of maritime trade.
The Kasbah of Algiers, a World Heritage site, is an outstanding example of a historic Maghreb city.
The history of Algiers from 1830 to 1962 is bound to its relationship to France.
Many Europeans settled, and by the early 20th century formed a majority of the city's population.
During the 1930s, Le Corbusier drew up plans for a complete redesign of the colonial city
However, Le Corbusier's plans were ultimately ignored by the French administration.
Algeria achieved independence on July 5, 1962.
Today, Algiers is an important economic, commercial and financial centre.
