  • Situated on a hillside more than 100 metres on the edge of the port of Algiers, it overlooks the Mediterranean Sea and the coastal landscape. The church was small, a Byzantine-style building, built by the French that year. The interior is dedicated to the Virgin of the dark, blessed my people and Muslims.

  • 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.
