It is a big and potentially very nice building but it needs a lot of renovation work to fulfill it's potential.

The post office was closed when I visited Algiers. Allegedly, it is going to be renovated, however, many people shrugged their shoulders when I asked if the post office would EVER be opened again. They all said, "This is Algeria, who knows?' Do walk around the building, it is wonderful.

Located in the heart of Algiers' European District, it is the main tourist attraction of the downtown area. Built by the French in 1910, it features massive turrets, keyhole doors, and elegant neo-Moorish fittings (including an opulent mailbox out front) that make is one of the city's most whimsical modern buildings. Most certainly it offers a "Kodak Moment!"--or two.

Currently a bit dilapidated as a fire caused quite some damage inside, therefore the building is currently not open to the public and it doesn't look like this will change any time soon as I couldn't make out any restoration efforts. Adore the facade, take a photo, tick it off your list.

Big building in modern Arabic style. It is in city centre. From there you can reach the suk and the casbah.
