  • The Casbah and the sea front (Corniche) so similar to that of Marseille are the dual soul of Algiers, Berber and Arabic on one side, French on the other. Recreation and then with richly worked and painted iron balconies all equal no heavenly and the intrigue of houses against each other like those of Saharan OASIS. A city within a city, his heart, the soul of his historic struggle for independence still leaked in the ruins of the hiding place of Ali La Pointe, now a Museum, as in the superb view over the city Bay view from the top of the Casbah. The Casbah is Algiers before France, definitely the most intimate and symbol of today's Algeria, antithesis of the city built by the French who destroyed much of this "medina" the most popular and full of meanings of the ancient cities and maghrebine and not confusion like a Souk. VA view preferably in the morning with a guide and with permission issued very easily and getting down from top to bottom.

  • 4 hours of rich visit with the impeccable guide Yacine (jarcha Wa fardja on facebook). A change of scenery to two hours from Paris! Atmosphere, codes an experience too. Full of colors and surprises in the palaces and homes of the Casbah. However, few artisans but so passionate and generous. Do not delay to go before the full renovation, they sulked, is necessary.
