After travelling Algeria for a week coming to this garden felt surprisingly calming. Small fee to get in and no entries during Friday prayer; the zoo is closed at this time as well (we did not go in there). Worth a visit for sure!

This is a beautiful garden with different themes (Algerian, European, etc) to explore. The photo opportunities here are great and the garden is located right below the Maqam al Shaheed.

This place is convenieantly located with the Metro station literally outside the gate. I can only describe it's beauty as breathtaking. An added bonus is also the fact that the Martys Monument is 2 minutes away by cable car. Worth a visit.
