Dounya Park Project (Algiers)   PresentationThe Islamic Culture Foundation together with the Spanish Embassy in Algeria signed an agreement to carry out this project, consisting of the creation of the Garden of the Kingdom of Spain, as a part of the environmental initiative involving the Dunia Park, located in Algiers. This project is supported by the Algerian Ministry Environment and Landing Management and is included within the Med-O-Med framework.
