  • The most beautiful view of the Bay of Algiers, bab el oued and the Casbah. Quiet place, a little away from the hustle and bustle of Algiers. Beautiful basilica, well highlighted.

  • Just simply beautiful. Clean grounds, quiet inside and out with a beautiful view of the sea.
  • Great view and architecture but: 1- Kids play around it very loudly when school is off 2- No public bathrooms or any services in the area
