  • A lot of commercial buildings in the surrounding streets, still no concept for the Place de Martyrs. Carpark established in the immediate neighborhood. A little sad. 
  • This is a very symbolic historic monument and pretty much reflects the state of the country. You will surely see some tent pitched by some political group prostesting something. 
  • The city centre and home to the monument to the martyrs. Must see though surrounding sites and a bit of trash talking they ruin the atmosphere and photos.
