Memorial du Martyr, Algiers

3.3
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. Make sure to visit the museum beneath the monument, which tells the dramatic story of the war in graphic detail.

  • Great contraption to completely vlezlo in the frame, it is necessary to take pictures of the square nearby, but somehow not impressed is stressing the severity of pretty air. View of the city-not a fountain, the Park is well visible. If you look in the opposite direction is a very atmospheric home, plastered with satellite dishes. Park close to impossible.
