Notre Dame d’Afrique

The Notre Dame d’Afrique is a Catholic basilica that still celebrates daily mass at 6 pm despite fewer visitations. However, it is still regarded as one of the most famous buildings in the city. It has striking neo-Byzantine architecture and freshly restored extravagant interior with amazing views out to sea and across the capital. The basilica sits at the top of a hill at the eastern edge of the city which makes it difficult to go by foot. It’s advised to take a taxi up there which would cost around 400DA.
