City Center Shopping Mall

The City Center shopping mall offers you a great choice of fashion boutiques, restaurants, cafes and ice cream shops. It also hosts a number of events, such as live concerts and children's animation. It's absolutely a good alternative to sightseeing, especially for when the weather is not particularly nice.

Shopping

Dive into the colourful fabrics and wonderful garments of Algerian culture. Traditional clothes are woven with great dexterity and make an ideal souvenir from the region. Also carpets and jewels are popular and can be found on every second corner in the city centre. For local woodwork and art work, you should try to drop into one of the galleries: you might even catch an artist at work and ask him questions about local craft. Keep in mind that stores might stay closed on Fridays, as it is common in many Islamic countries.
