Grande Poste

Historic Building in Algiers

Algiers' beloved main post office is an unmissable piece of living history, a fine example of French-designed, early 20th-century Moorish architecture. Look out for what is possibly the world’s most exquisitely decorated post box near the entrance. At the time of research it was closed to visitors and in the process of being converted into a museum; it's expected to reopen sometime in 2018.
