  • Not having Algiers many attractions have to seize those that exist and this is at the top of the list. I went and came back walk, a path that requires some habit of walking. There was the stairs next to the cable car (inactive) which proved to be full of garbage and returned by road. The Cathedral is simple but interesting. Opens at 11:00.

  • It overlooks "El Mahroussa", she has a sumptuous, enchanting and beautiful night view. It is a strong indicator of tolerance and peace of a great country like the Algeria.

  • Very beautiful Basilica (small size I was surprised) it was renovated a few years ago. What makes sparkling. also placed on the height of disappearances (the name of the founder of the city district) you can enjoy a unique view of the Bay of Algiers.

  • Magnificent view on the bay of Algiers, and one of the oldest places (Boloughine) so spiritual, rich of history and civilian.
  • Beautiful location with amazing views. The church is only open to the public from 11-12:30 and 3-5:30pm but the courtyard surrounding it is large with many benches for enjoying the view. There is also a place for parking and a supérette close by for snacks.
  • excellent visit. ill thank the priest in it wass so cool nd also the sister's
  • An awsome view of the city. Great place. A place to visite.
  • One of the cleaner places to visit in Algiers. It is, though, just a church. The view to the ocean is fantastic.
