Palais d'Ahmed Bey, Constantine

4.4
#4 of 16 in Things to do in Constantine
Even though Constantine's Ahmed Bey stayed here for only two years, Palais d'Ahmed Bey ranks among Algeria's finest Ottoman structures. French colonialists chased out the 19th-century ruler, and were then succeeded by the local army, who fortunately left the Ottoman-inspired architecture intact. Walk around the palace to discover courtyards surrounded by white arches, green walls, and colorful tiles that create awe-inspiring motifs and mosaics. Though closed for 25 years, the palace recently reopened after restoration. Use our Constantine trip site to arrange your visit to Palais d'Ahmed Bey and other attractions in Constantine.

  • The first downside is that it costs less for Algerians (100 da). For foreigners it costs just double (200 da)... Then the Palace is empty: no furniture nothing! There is just room to the ground floor with two articles and a large table with a few explanations without more. The entire first floor is empty. This being the gardens are beautiful and well maintained. Some frescoes on the walls are kept clean (they are just beautiful) others much less. In short this visit was a disappointment for the Group
