Sidi-Ferruch Monument Revisited
We're delighted to provide an update on one of our earlier blogposts, written in 2019 about the Redoute Béar Sidi-Ferruch Monument at Port Vendres. The old fort houses the monument originally erected at Sidi Ferruch in 1930 to commemorate the original French landings there in 1830, and later repatriated to Port Vendres after independence. Today, the small museum commemorating life in French Algeria is closed, but new memorials have been erected around the site. We are grateful to Caoimhe Nic Dháibhéid for sharing her impressions and photos of her visit to the site in 2022.
