Centre des Etudes Andalouses
The Centre des Etudes Andalouses (Center for Andalusian Studies) in Tlemcen, Algeria, is a remarkable architectural gem reflecting Andalusian Moorish art. The layout of this African Art center features thematic patios, each with a distinct function, such as the educational area, known as the "patio of knowledge." All these smaller patios surround a larger one called the "patio gazelles," where a large water jet is surrounded by gazelles.
The primary purpose of the Centre des Etudes Andalouses is to promote research into Andalusian civilization and encourage researchers to explore various aspects of Andalusian art and culture, including decoration, poetry, literature, philosophy, and more.
The construction of the center was funded by an allocation of 650 million dinars, and it spans an area of 10,000 square meters. The facility is equipped with a library, a media library, laboratories, and conference rooms. In addition to hosting research activities and scientific meetings, the center also provides state-of-the-art equipment for academics to conduct comprehensive studies on various prehistoric sites in the city and region, such as Beni Snous, Nedroma, and Ouled Mimoun.
The research projects will encompass various fields within the human and social sciences, including archaeology, prehistory, historical and religious sciences, philosophy, and linguistics. The center also aims to provide academics with the necessary resources to contribute to the training of young researchers and facilitate scientific exchanges between different research centers and universities worldwide. The Centre des Etudes Andalouses is affiliated with the National Center for Research in Prehistory, Anthropology, and History (CNRPAH) in Algiers. The center was completed in March 2011.
