Algeria

From beaches along the Mediterranean coast and snowy mountains in the north to the Sahara in the south, Algeria has one of the most diverse landscapes in Africa. If you are searching for undiscovered destinations to travel to, Algeria is definitely one of them.

Rich in history and culture, traveling to Algeria makes it a busy itinerary with many things to do. Visiting Algerian cities will make you forget you are in Africa, instead you will feel like you are walking around France.

The capital city of Algeria, Algiers is a beautiful city with great architecture by the Mediterranean. Make sure to check out the Bardo Museum, Botanical garden El-Hamma Jardin d’Essai, Basilique Notre Dame d’Afrique, and Casbah in the city.

Some of the other amazing coastal towns in Algeria include Oran, Annaba, Skikda, Jijel, Ghazaouet, and Cherchell. These places are excellent for relaxation on the beach and learn more about Algerian culture.

A charming city, Constantine is a unique place you must visit in Algeria. This impressive city is built on tall cliffs where you get to cross bridges to get around.

Constantine offers a perfect mix of culture, history, and nature. Not to mention the absolutely delicious Algerian cuisine. Visiting the Emir Abdelkader Mosque and Palais d’Ahmed Bey shouldn’t be missed here.

Timgad and Djémila are two important locations to visit in Algeria for the ancient Roman ruins. The ruins in Timgad are listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site and they are in much better condition than others. A small mountain village, Djémila is mostly popular among local tourists.

A trip to Algeria is not complete without exploring the Sahara desert. The landscape here is simply stunning from endless sand dunes to dramatic Hoggar mountains. While Hoggar is a popular place to go trekking in Algeria, Tassili N’Ajjer National Park offers some of the best desert sights in the country.
