ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
Algeria is one of the most fascinating countries in North Africa, but unfortunately, the current security situation is unsafe and most national governments strongly recommend not traveling here at this time.

Algeria is the largest country in Africa and is home to several fascinating attractions and activities. The capital city of Algiers has a rich past and the UNESCO World Heritage sites of the countryside ruins at Djemila, Tipasa and Timgad are fascinating to see.

Another worthwhile sidetrip is a journey to the Hauts Plateaux where you can visit the historical city of Tlemcen, and the Almohad ramparts and Masourah Fortress.
