Stunning building in location overlooking the harbour. No entry fee but scarf required for females. It shows the value of different religions living in the same area and how cooperation brings results.

The Notre Dame d'Afrique was built by the French in the 1800's when Algeria was a French possession. Although the country is presently 98% Muslim and less than 2% Christian, this cathedral is well maintained. The entry road is guarded by a soldier with an automatic weapon and several armed uniformed guards were noted on the grounds. The church has... More

Recently renovated, really nice building and great view. I got there around 2pm on a Tuesday afternoon and the building itself was closed to the public, however the main gate to the premises was open and guarded.

When the French build this church they incorporated some Islamic elements into the building. It is an example of a well executed mixture of styles and as such, it's a nice building to visit. Recently they have restored the inside and outside back to its original appearance. You can visit the inside as well. Donations are welcomed. The view is... More

The Notre Dame d'Afrique is one of the few surviving churches in the Algerian Republic from the French colonial period. As far as ecclesiastical architecture goes, the outer facade itself is not remarkable. However, the interior of the church, its history, and the serenity of the grounds within which it stands are all worth the hike to get up here.... More

This was one of the stops on a little tour that I did with a hired driver. The church is beautiful and there are some very picturesque views from the property.
