Ketchaoua Mosque, Algiers

4.3
#5 of 12 in Historic Sites in Algiers
Known for its mix of Byzantine and Moorish architectural styles, Ketchaoua Mosque remains one of the most recognizable sites in the city, as well as a powerful religious spot. Enter along the wide set of stairs, and inside find an interior covered with detailed carvings and inscriptions, marble columns and arcades. Outside, note the two minarets decorated with Moorish plasterwork. Built in 1612 and having undergone a series of renovations since, the building has served as both cathedral and mosque, and today testifies to the rich history of Algiers.
