Dedicated to the soldiers killed in the Algerian War of Independence, Memorial du Martyr occupies the grounds of an ancient fort. The memorial opened on the 20th anniversary of Algeria's independence in 1982. Reaching a height of 92 m (302 ft), it represents three palm leaves sheltering an "eternal flame." See three different statues of soldiers at the base of the palm leaves, marking different stages of the war that lasted from 1954 to 1962.

  • For a sensible place to be representative of one country we can not find better, empty place without life, either in the morning or in the evening, a few restaurants left right, a few bars filled with people who can not drink at home, religion obliges the night despite the police presence, not really feels safe, only positive, the Museum of martyrdom, if you want to see the Algerian version of the revolution.

  • The memorial offers self-explanatory museum dedicated to war for independence. It is a must see attraction and the views from the memorial are simply amazing.  more »
  • A great place to relax, crowded, but you can always find a quiet corner to grab a snack and sit in the sunshine and green grass.
