Tlemcen, Algeria Tlemcen (Berber: Tlemsan or Třemsan; Algerian Arabic: تْلمسان, Tlemsan; Arabic: تلمسان Tilimsān) is a city in north-western Algeria, and the capital of the province of the same name. The city has developed leather, carpet, and textile industries, which it ships to the port of Rashgun for export.
