City overview

The capital city of Algeria lies on the banks of the Mediterranean Sea and has a rich history dating from Phoenician times. Given its sometimes violent history, this beautiful city is an exciting flight destination for intrepid travellers. One of the main reasons people fly to Algiers, other than for business, is for the opportunity to experience a North African culture that remains relatively undiluted by tourism when compared to the likes of Marrakech and Tangiers. A key attraction the city has to offer is the beauty of its architecture and natural scenery which different cultures, including the Romans, Ottomans and French, have helped shape over the centuries. The city is affectionately nicknamed ‘Algiers la blanche’ (the white) in recognition of the stunning white buildings that shine in the sunlight. When taking a flight to Algiers, be sure to make time to see The Kasbah, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a must-see destination. Located in the northern part of the city, it is a living time-capsule that transports visitors back to the 16th century. Best explored with the help of a guide, many visitors spend an entire day simply exploring the narrow streets or sitting in one of the numerous cafes tasting the delicious Algerian coffee and lamb dishes on offer. Also located inside the Kasbah is the Great Mosque of Algiers. It is the oldest mosque in Algiers and its minarets are said to date from the early 1300s. Outside the Kasbah and representing the French influences on the city, Notre Dame d’Afrique is another very popular tourist destination. Overlooking the bay of Algiers, it was built in 1872 to provide a place of worship for Catholics.
