I have visited notre dame d'afrique during the day and at night as well. the view at both times is breathtaking. the church is beautiful from the inside and it reflects the co-existence of religions, that is something you'll have to see inside. the father there was really helpful as well!

The city view is spectacular. The church is impressive. There is a nice yard where you can relax and view the city from above.

This old cathedral overlooks a beautiful location in Algiers. Great views of the Mediterranean from this hilltop setting. The facility is only open certain hours and days, so we couldn't get inside to see it. Still it is worth the windy, hilly, narrow drive to get there. I recommend it!

A very interesting combination of Cathedral and remembrance! Take the time to read the plaques on the walls, the dates that go back to early 1800's - very interesting!

What a view from the largest and most historic Catholic Church in North Africa. Be sure to attend An organ event or a singing event in the church. The acoustics are amazing girl. And, little a candelabra and make a small donation, as your sins will be absolved!!!

Does not open until 11 a.m. but friendly priest may be persuaded to open up the church for you earlier and give a short lecture on its history. Despite "no photos" signs, he will allow you to take photos. The church organ was inaugurated by Camille St. Saens!!! The view of Algiers from the church is amazing. The gift shop... More

If you go to Algiers, you must see Notre-Dame d'Afrique. First of all for its amazing architecture and colours, it is a unique place in Algiers, a peaceful points in the chaos. Then the view on the city is unbelievable from there. If you want a taste of nostalgia in Algiers, don't miss it.
