Distinctive Fusion of Mediterranean Cultures

Tlemcen rose to prominence as a major trading and administrative center in the region under the succeeding reign of the Almohads in 1210. Tlemcen not only served as a trading city connecting the coastal route across the Maghreb with the trans-Saharan caravan routes, but also housed a European trading center (funduk) which connected African and European merchants. Tlemcen was especially important as one of the points through which African gold entered the European hands, partially integrating Tlemcen was partially integrated into the European financial system.

Today’s population of Tlemcen is divided between Hadars, who are descendent of the Moors, and the Algerian Turks (also known as the "Kouloughlis"), who are the descendents of the Ottoman Turkish settlers. The city adapted and became more cosmopolitan, with a unique outlook on art and culture, and its architecture and urban life evolved to accommodate this new sense. The city has developed leather, carpet, and textile industries, which it ships to the port of Rashgun for export.
Islamic Landmarks
The Great Mosque at Tlemcen was completed in 1136 and is said to be the most remarkable remaining example of Almoravid architecture. Adjoining the mosque is the beautiful tomb of Sidi Boumédiène.
