Algeria is one of the cheapest places that you can visit in summer .It has such rich culture with and magical views and places which has some great hisotry.
The Kasbah, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is in the capital and most populous city of Algiers, located in the far north of the country. The enchanting whitewashed houses and narrow streets still have an authentic feel despite the area being one of Algeria’s most popular tourist attractions. Usually, thousands of tourists from all over the world would visit the site to take in the splendour of Algerian heritage. The ancient Kasbah is a steep and narrow maze of streets. It is also worth exploring the Ottoman palaces such as Dar Hassan Pacha.
The Cathedral of Notre Dame d’Afrique is a Roman Catholic Church that overlooks the sea below. Completed in 1872 after fourteen years of construction, this magnificent building of Neo-Byzantine architecture is ornately decorated inside the Spanish-Moorish decor. It is probably one of the only churches in the world where the invocation to the Virgin Mary, Our Lady of Africa, reads: Notre Dame d’Afrique, priez pour nous et pour les Musulmans meaning “Our Lady of Africa, pray for us and for Muslims”.
The Maqam Echahid or Martyrs’ Memorial, one of the most recognisable landmarks in the city, is a concrete monument commemorating the Algerian War. The monument was opened in 1982, on the 20th anniversary of Algeria’s independence. It is shaped with three massive concrete palm leaves, which come together and shield the “Eternal Flame” under it. At the edge of each palm frond is a statue of a soldier representing a stage of Algeria’s struggle for independence.
Bejaia is situated on Algeria’s Mediterranean coastline and this is the city’s primary attraction for tourists. The history of the city is expansive and has been settled by the Vandals, Byzantines and Ottoman Turks. The museum in the city has various artifacts to prove this turbulent history. In addition to the museum there is also an impressive Spanish fortress and the so called ‘Monkey Peak’ which is home to the endangered Barbary Macaque monkey.It has also some magnificient beaches that will be perfect from swimming .
It’s impossible to be in Algeria during summer without visiting Tipaza.
Tipaza is a coastal town, a few kilometers west of Algiers. It is endowed with beautiful beaches, surrounded by reliefs of Chenoua Mountain which is the highest peak of the Algerian Sahel hills. It was founded thousands of years ago by the Phoenicians who turned it into a trading post. In Phoenician, Tipaza derives its sense of “passage“, in reference to the fact that it represented, at that time, an obligatory passage between Algiers and Cherchell. The city of Tipaza is famous for its Roman remains and for its beaches. The archaeological site of Tipaza contains various vestiges, including the remains of a basilica of Santa Salsa, a cemetery, thermal baths and an amphitheater, close to the sea.
Among the beaches enjoyed by families on the coast of Tipaza, that of El Hamdania is, in the opinion of many summer visitors, one of the favorites. The beach of El Hamdania, with its dark sand, extends over a long distance. Close to the waves, small tents of cubic shape are set up there. El Hamdania is ideal for children to swim since the water is not deep even if one sinks a little towards the sea one always touches the bottom. Also, the Chenoua beach that is located at the foot of Mount Chenoua is a destination for many families. It was sung by Camus in “Les Noces“. It is accessed by a road of cornice bypassing the massif by the north. One of these beaches leaves the edge of the enclosure of the Roman ruins of Tipaza and develops its curve 2 km further at the foot of the small village giving access to the road of the cornice.
