"Ras El Hamra/Cap de Garde" Sidi Taher by JLBG

Sidi Taher Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 7 photos

I have found in VT location database that Sidi Taher was the closest location to Ras El Hamra that was not in the database. So, let it build Ras El Hamra under Sidi Taher !

The bay of Annaba stretches from west, Ras El Hamra, also known by locals under its ancient name of Cap de Garde, to East, Ras Ouerdia, formerly Cap Rosa.

Note that in Arab "Ras" means "head". In various languages, some capes are called "Head of .." or the equivalent in the country's language. Anyhow, "cape" comes from the Latin "caput" which means too "head". Everywhere in the world, these rocky pieces of land, protruding into the sea are considered as heads.

    Wonderful pictures of the lighthouse in the fantastic scenery and the clouds with all the light effects.

    The weather may not have been the best for you, but it certainly made for some interesting photos! The lighthouse looks very stark and commanding!!

    The lighthouse on the rocks and that scenic road look very picturesque.
