  • Just splendid overlooking the beautiful Bay of Algiers, a place of worship but also beautiful architecture and history, I highly recommend

  • Got inside, because only two works with low hours (here indicated the correct time), outside looks quite unusual-similar to the Shiite mosque with frankly Ottoman outlines. Cute, pretty clean air. Don't know what influenced more-Ramadan early hour, Saturday, all of the above together or there is always the case, but was not crowded. At the entrance (as in many places in Algeria), oshivaetsya guardian of the rule of law.

  • Make absolutely seen on Algiers and the Harbour entrance Monument sublime who commands respect. Forbidden photos but postcard on sale for a few cents of euros damage that the road is very poorly indicated. Véronique of Sète

  • Brilliant! Breathtaking views of the Algers Bay. The basilica itself features very light decorations and very calm and soothing. A must when in city.
  • Perfect landscape location with a panoramic sea scenario look out. Taking selfies inside the basilic is forbidden and there is a specific place to take normal photos if would like too. That's the annoying part.
  • Great location and good view. If you go there at the openinhmg hour which is 11:00A.M you will join the morning tour where the history of the basilique is told. Interesting thing about the basilica is the writings on the dome; "Notre Dame prays for us and the muslims" which is not commonly seen in other churches.
  • Lovely view!
  • A Marvel linking the past to the present
