Well, this is sad. A stunning post office building you can only observe from the outside, as it is completely closed to tourists. As with many things in Algiers, it will reopen "soon" as a postal museum.

The central post office is classical Algerian style building, located among European colonized buildings. There are so many shops, good restaurants and cafe. Not far to have a good view to see Mediterranean Sea! It’s worthy to spend Saturday afternoon there! 中央郵局是棟美麗的阿爾及利亞式宮廷建築,座落在歐風建築群市中心。這裡有很多店,餐廳和咖啡店,十分熱鬧!在走下去可以看到地中海,值得星期六下午到訪!

This is a must in Algiers. Unfortunately there is no way of visiting from inside completely since it's still being used as a public building.

Imposing building. Excellent landmark to find your bearings. Built as a mosque by the French in a show of ?goodwill - acts of which were few and far between - unsurprisingly not appreciated and so became the main post office. Visited as part of my...More
