Very beautiful interior, and a Megestic outside. the post is still in use. This is the first landmark in Algiers even for locals. From there you can go to Didouche or the Casbah.

magnificent edifice in central Algiers. Like what European Post Offices must have been in the old days. If you just need stamps, go to counter 19. 40 DZD to post something to Europe.

Beautiful building both interior and exterior. It's located in the nicest part of Algiers so you have to stop by. There are a few nice cafes nearby so start off with a coffee, visit the post office, wander through some of the local book shops on the main shopping street and then finish with a lovely light lunch.

It is quite difficult to buy a postage stamp at the post office, they seem to be doing everything else than posting mail! there is always a long waiting list of people trying to cash in checks, and the credit card money distributor does not take international visa cards, only local cards.

Iconic landmark in the down town, perfect example of the Moorish/Algerian/Andalusian architecture, it is a post office and not really a touristic attraction, however you can take a look at the interior, stunning indeed and reminds me of Alambra palace in Granada-Spain
