  • 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
