Not as impressive as had originally thought. But still an interesting place to visit especially considering the history. The views were nice. Hard to get to without a guide.

Peaceful place we went there quiet late just when the sun went down. You get most view of the city from here. Historic beautiful old church you should definitely visit when you are in Alger.

The basilica was built in XIX century and damaged 15 years ago during an earthquake. It is still in a good conditions despite the fact that most of the churches in Algeria are abandoned or demolished. Its location is also beneficial.

It was closed when we went, but still a pretty place and amazing city views. Not far from town, maybe 10 minutes' drive. Would go again but check the opening hours.
