Bejaia  is an exciting and historical city located on the south coast of the Mediterranean Sea in Algeria.

 

Béjaïa is a Mediterranean port city on the Gulf of Béjaïa in Algeria. It was the capital for the Berber Hammadid dynasty in the 11th century, and became an important port and cultural center. Fibonacci (right picture), learned there Indian mathematics which he called Modus Indorum, Hindu-Arabic numerals, and introduced them and modern mathematics into Europe.

Maurice Boitel (left picture), a famous French painter, painted in the city for a while, his picture can be found in the museum of Béjaïa.

The town is overlooked by the mountain Yemma Gouraya, whose profile is said to resemble a sleeping woman.

The city was formerly known under various European names, such as Budschaja in German, Bugia in Italian, and Bougie in French (the latter two words for candle, derived from the town name because of its wax trade).
