An extensive cultural programme with events for all tastes.
Epicentre of the capital's art scene
This is where the capital's cultural scene gets its name. The Moufdi Zakaria Palace, as well as being the head offices of the Ministry for Culture, is the leading centre for events and conferences in the city. Every season, it organises a quality programme of events for all tastes: seminars, conferences, music concerts, national and international symposia, film screenings, plays and much more. It is made up of various halls around a pretty central patio that are equipped for a range of uses: an auditorium with capacity for four hundred people, a full library, a main external square used for stunning open-air events, a pair of galleries for temporary exhibitions and a main hall reserved for official events. It opened in 1984 and is named after the famous Algerian poet who wrote the words to the national anthem. Would you want to miss it?
