Essentials in Algeria
Ancient ruins: One of the most popular attractions for visitors in Algeria are the ancient ruins: Roman, Phoenician and Byzantine. The most famous sights for these are in Batna, Annaba, Setif and Guelma. It’s worth hiring a guide when visiting these places.
The Sahara Desert: This noble and ancient desert is a must-visit in Algeria. The best place to see is the M’zab Valley with some remarkable clay architecture. Entire cities are made up of amazing modern, cubist structures.
Mediterranean beaches: Algeria is really lacking in beach resorts and facilities and the country really hasn’t tapped into its beach destination potential. The result? Secluded beaches all to yourself.
