Even though Constantine's Ahmed Bey stayed here for only two years, Palais d'Ahmed Bey ranks among Algeria's finest Ottoman structures. French colonialists chased out the 19th-century ruler, and were then succeeded by the local army, who fortunately left the Ottoman-inspired architecture intact. Walk around the palace to discover courtyards surrounded by white arches, green walls, and colorful tiles that create awe-inspiring motifs and mosaics. Though closed for 25 years, the palace recently reopened after restoration. Use our Constantine trip site to arrange your visit to Palais d'Ahmed Bey and other attractions in Constantine.

On the walls, we admire in the basement the beautiful tiled floor and above the very vivid paintings. We're laying in the gardens. Not to be missed.
One of the most important monuments in Constantine. The most remarkable thing is the calmness of the place, it is situated in the middle of the old city and it is surrounded by markets, but you hear absolutely nothing inside, you totally zone out!
An extraordinary palace, everything on the inside, the spaces that are organized around the gardens, the decorations, the frescoes, the marbles, the collones, everything was magnificent
