Hit the casbah for a journey through time! The old town sprung up in the 5th century AD. Settled since time immemorial, today it is home to some fascinating vestiges of the 17th and 18th centuries. Mosques and palaces are everywhere you look, waiting around every bend in this maze of streets. The casbah was granted World Heritage of Humanity status in 1992.

Between France and Algeria

Between France and Algeria

The Grand Post Office was designed by French architects and built in 1910. Its neo-Moorish style was in vogue at the time in France, and was chosen to symbolise a melding of French and Algerian cultures. This gorgeous monument is beautiful inside and out. The arches and domes are embellished with marble and faïence work to luxurious effect.

The Maison du Couscous

You can't leave town without trying a good couscous. The Maison du Couscous is one of Algiers’s star eateries, and one of the capital's rare few restaurants to serve up authentic national cuisine. Most couscous is prepared and eaten at home as a family meal. On the menu: Algerian couscous and rechta are sure to get your mouth watering.

Gastronomy

Sfiria: Algerian croquettes

Sfiria is an Algiers speciality and one of the city's best-kept secrets. These bread-crumbed croquettes are made with egg, cinnamon and cheese and served with chickpeas and chicken.

Festive rechta

Festive rechta

Like chorba and couscous, rechta is generally served on religious feast days and public bank holidays. In this dish, semolina is swapped for pasta served with meat, courgettes, turnips and chickpeas, coated in a delicious cinnamon-infused white sauce - it's all about the rechta! This Algiers speciality makes for an excellent alternative to couscous.
