Algiers Travel Guide

Just a three-hour flight from London, Algiers is a magnificent holiday destination of beautiful beaches and fascinating historical attractions. Those who visit should begin their advetures with a trip to the Casbah: the oldest part of the city and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Casbah is home to the beautiful El Kebir Mosque, which is the oldest in Algiers.

Another stunning sight is the Notre Dame d'Afrique. The small basilica is a marvellous example of Romanesque architecture and offers great views of the city from the tower. Algiers also has some excellent museums, such as the National Museum of Fine Arts, the Military Museum, the Museum of Antiquities and the Museum of Traditional and Popular Arts.

One of the best ways to enjoy Algiers is by soaking up the sunshine. Visitors can do this at the Aquafortland waterpark, or at the seaside resorts such as Sidi Fredj, Palm Beach, Douaouda or the Club of the Pines.
