A mosque looking church!!

Mostly interesting as a Catholic landmark in a Muslim country. Nothing really special inside though.

This is an old church on the hillside overlooking the Mediterranean and hence offers lovely view of the Algiers city and coastline. The church itself is a big and quite grand one...you are allowed to walk in and have a view but not click photos....More

I mixed up my comment with the sacre couer but this is the best place to visit for a great view. Calm and quiet you can enjoy the local people. This is a must to visit.
