Artagne (/aʁtaɲ/) is the executive and judicial capital of the Çyr and the seat of the province of the same name. Home to almost 6 million citizens, it is also the most populous city in the nation. As the home of both Le Tiɣremt and the Supreme Court of the Çyr, Artagne shares the role of national capital of the Çyr with Mélitine where the Convention of Citizens is located. The position of the city on the western coast of the Isles of Çyr has made it an important shipping port and the gateway of the nation to the west.

Founded in 1728 by Burgundian settlers nearby the older city of Soumers, the town's name came from the term "ars tagen" or roughly "creation risen" or "art of the day". The town came to prominence after it was made the new capital of the Burgundian colony in 1791 following a slave revolt in the traditional capital of Mélitine. At the same time, Artagne agglomerated several neighbouring villages and was quickly developed from a small fishing and trading town into a fortified city and administrative capital.

In the present day, Artagne is a multicultural city with a diversified economy. Tourism makes up a large part of the city's economy and the attractions, including urban green spaces, festivals, and nightlife are world-renowned. The city is home to a regional association football team, two australian football teams, a large yachting club, and four Grand Prix races at different levels through its streets and around Parc Taen.
