Overview

This new Bradt guide will be the first to focus on the renascent Algeria and bring out the many features of this beguiling North African country.  The attraction of Algeria lies in its fascinating mix of cultures.  The towns ooze French charm with churches crowning vine-covered hills and cafés lining the streets; however, a short trip will bring you to a mud-brick town or Sahara oasis that echoes a muezzin’s call and where Europe feels a world away.  The guide covers fascinating UNESCO World Heritage sites, Al Qata of Beni Hammad, Djemila, M’zab Vakkey and the Roman sites of Timgad and Tipasa, all free from thronging crowds.

The important legacy of the French colonial period, including Sidi Bel Abbes, home of the French Foreign Legion, is detailed for travelers to appreciate modern-day Algeria.  Additionally, all the practical details expected from a Bradt guide are covered.
