La Grande Poste d'Alger, Algiers

4.1
Iconic for its impressive triple-arched entrance, La Grande Poste d'Alger stands as a historic landmark in French neo-Moorish arabisance style. Built in 1910 on the site of an 1870 Anglican church within a historic Ottoman fort, the five-story historic headquarters of the Algerian General Post Office features domes, minarets, large wooden doors, marble staircases, and elaborate ceilings. See period mailboxes painted green with elaborate Arabic calligraphy next to the entrance. Well-lit at night, the building draws visitors as spectacle in the capital. You can sip a coffee while viewing the façade from one of numerous coffeeshops across the street.
