La Casbah de Argel

Built on a hill that rises 120 metres above the surrounding area, the maze-like streets of the Casbah of Algiers hide Ottoman palaces, 17th Century buildings and marvellous mosques: the Ketchaoua Mosque, the Djemaa el-Djedid Mosque and the Djemaa el-Kebir Mosque.
Its narrow white streets contrast with the rest of the city, which spreads out over the flatter terrain.
This part of the Algerian capital has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1992.
