Le Grande Poste d'Alger
The best example of contemporary Arabic architecture. Wonderful!
You'll be lost for words
One of those places you simply have to visit when in Algiers. The stylised lines of this stately post office form the best example of Neo-Mudéjar style in the city, resulting in a magnificent combination of tradition and elegance. In addition to its bold white façade and walls, its delicate layout is also bound to impress, mixing arches, large windows and balconies. And it's not only the outside that's remarkable, the building is home to one of the city's best kept secrets: its ceiling, which will leave you speechless. Built in 1910, following the designs of the architects Voinot and Toudoire, it was created to house the city's main post office and continues to do so today. Try to visit Sunday to Thursday so you can go inside, as it is only open during normal office hours.
