Constantine

Constantine, Algeria's third city, is one of the grand urban spectacles of Algeria, made by nature but embellished by man. Over time, the Oued Rhumel (Rhumel River) carved out a deep, and almost circular, gorge around an outcrop of rock, creating a natural fortress that was already occupied in Neolithic times. Since then, Constantine has always been a city of political, cultural and economic significance.
