Sea-facing and especially enchanting at night.
Green zone at the feet of the Casbah
If you are staying in the centre of Algiers, you'll definitely pass through these gardens at least once. The Square Port Saïd is a 5,500-m2 green zone at the feet of the Casbah, consisting of a series of very popular, intertwining paths. It is named after the French and British Suez campaign in 1956 and is one of the few places in the city that hasn't been renamed after the independence. Its pedestrianised centre is full of palm trees and gardens and it is surrounded by beautiful buildings: The National Theatre of Algiers, the Hotel Terminus shopping galleries and the mythical Café Tantonville. The gardens are especially spectacular by night, when the lighting combines with the Mediterranean breeze to create a sublime, especially enchanting atmosphere.
