Monument to the Dead
- Sidi M'Cid Hill
Lonely Planet review for Monument to the Dead
Just beyond the Sidi M'Cid bridge, on a hill of the same name, stands the Monument to the Dead. It was built specifically for the people of Constantine, from Alfred Abdilla to Jacob Zitoun who died 'Pro Patria', the country being France, not Algeria. The monument is a copy of the arch of Trajan at Timgad. The statue of winged Victory that tops the monument is an enlarged replica of the bronze sculpture in the Cirta Museum.
