Algiers is the capital and largest city of Algeria, located on the central Mediterranean coast.

The most of the interesting part of the city for most travelers is the old part of town, known as the Casbah or Medina, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. There are the remains of a citadel, old mosques and Ottoman-style palaces overlooking the islands where a Carthaginian trading-post was established in the 4th century BC.

Also popular with travelers are the French colonial architecture one finds in various places and the enchanting promenade along the seafront.

El Djazair

The Kasbah of Algiers is an outstanding example of a historic Maghreb city having had extensive influence on town-planning in the western part of the Mediterranean and sub-Saharan Africa. Located on the Mediterranean coast, the site was inhabited at least from the 6th century BC, when a Phoenician trading post was established there. Today nearly 50,000 people reside in the Kasbah, which includes interesting traditional houses, palaces, bath houses, mosques and various souks.
Islamic Landmarks
As a major Arab city, Algiers has some of the finest mosques in northern Africa. These include:

El Kebir Mosque. Oldest mosque in the Casbah.

Ketchaoua Mosque. Built in 1794 by the Dey Baba Hassan.

El Djedid Mosque. Built in 1660 during the Turkish reign.
