"My stay in Sétif" Wilaya de Setif by escuain

Wilaya de Setif Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 22 photos

Sétif - Roman Algeria

This history-filled city is located on a 1.100 m plateau, surrounded by mountanous terrain. Sétif is the capital of the Wilaya (privince, or prefecture) of Sétif. The city is located about 500 km east of Algiers, and between the cities of Bejaia and Constantine.

I travelled to the Sétif Wilaya for work reasons, but I hope you find interesting the photos I took in my spare time. Sorry for the quality, but I took them from a car with a primitive digital camera, the ones that had disquettes...

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:For adventure and history seekers - welcome to the real Algeria!
  • Cons:Careful, turists are a rare sight, and has it's disadvantages
  • In a nutshell:History and monumental city brimming with the greatest magrib hospitality

    Hi Marc-Daniel, Nearly visited a friend here in the early 90s, but sadly had to cancel. Great start on your page, well done. Happy Travels (~_~)
