What to see near the port of Algiers

Algiers is a very interesting city from a historical and cultural point of view. Walking along its streets, in fact, you will find numerous places and monuments that will not fail to capture your attention. 

Not far from the port area is the qasba, the fortified citadel that corresponds to the medina of Algiers. In 1992 the old city - made up of narrow streets and steep stairways - was declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco. One of the most important buildings in the medina is certainly the Ketchaoua mosque: built at the end of the eighteenth century, in 1832 it was converted into a cathedral by the French. It returned to the mosque more than a century later, in 1962, when Algeria gained independence. 

Near the old quarter, a few meters from the sea, stands another historic building in Algiers. We refer to Bastion 23 (also called Q 'asr Rouy' ): residence of the Algerian admirals during the Ottoman period, today the palace houses a museumA few kilometers from the medina, on a promontory accessible by cable car, you can admire the church of Notre-Dame d'Afrique, built in neo-Byzantine style.

In addition to the aforementioned Ketchaoua mosque, other important places of Islamic worship stand on the territory of Algiers: the great Jamaa-el-Kebir mosque (the oldest in the city), the new Jamaa-el-Jedid mosque (dating back to the 17th century) and the Djamaa el Djazair (the third largest in the world).

Returning to the center, do not miss the opportunity to take a walk in the Jardin d'Essai, park and botanical garden of Algiers. In the vicinity of the Jardin are the suggestive Villa Abd-el-Tif and the Maqam Echahid, a commemorative monument to the Algerian War of Independence built at the beginning of the 1980s.
