Villa Abd-el-Tif, Algiers

4.2
#8 of 11 in Museums in Algiers
Once a haven for prestigious artist residencies, today Villa Abd-el-Tif houses the headquarters of the Algerian Agency for Cultural Radiation (AARC). Formerly, the villa served as an artist's residence for painters and sculptors, but fell into disrepair after Algeria gained independence. Amble around the ornate architecture that has been restored over the years. Notice the mixture of masonry work such as marble, stone, and sandstone.
