Imposing religious buildings looking over a landscape decorated in colour and beauty – in spite of all its enigmatic allure - Algiers’ ability to remain under the radar for holidaymakers is perhaps its most surprising facet. Not only is Algiers a truly wonderful place to explore, every creek and crevice filled with a unique symbol of history that embodies an era or movement, its close proximity to Europe will make you marvel at the reasons you didn’t visit sooner.
Regardless of your idea of a good trip, Algeria’s capital is brimming with such charisma, culture and charm that it will satisfy your thirst for excitement; The Basilique Notre-Dame D’Afrique is perhaps the pinnacle of the pleasing aesthetics, a stunning edifice created several hundred years ago, emanating an aura of peace from its towering walls and royal spires.
