Antique etched and engraved view of the fortified Mediterranean port of Algiers, in present-day Algeria, by Pierre Aveline, one of the foremost viewmakers of the early 18th century.

The view describes Algiers as one of the most populated and richest cities in Africa. The breakwater of the harbor and steep walls and forts surrounding the city are also shown.

In the foreground are impressive renderings of European sailing vessels and a many-oared galley.
