La Guera is an abandoned, ex-Spanish colonial outpost that lies on the Western Saharan side of the Ras Nouadhibou peninsula. Inhabitants of the town fled during the 1975 unrest and live in refugee camps in Algeria to this day. Currently Mauritanian military and the odd fishermen are the only occupants of the space that is being reclaimed by the ruthless desert sand.
