Sightseeing Tlemcen 1 The Mosque of Sidi Boumediene

Just to the south-east of the town centre you will find one of North Africa's most beautiful tombs. Commemorating a scholarly mystic who died a thousand years ago, the complex also once hosted classes by the great philosopher Ibn Khaldun. It's not to be missed.

2 Visit Mansourah

This old fortress, mosque and palace complex was the ancient centre of Tlemcen and hosts many stunning buildings and artworks. Check out the 39-foot-high walls and the enormous ruins of the mosque. The site is a little out of town. It can be reached by asking your taxi driver to head to Mansourah.

3 Visit the Grand Mosque

Possibly the city's finest building, the Grand Mosque has ornate decorations, beautiful domed cupolas and a commanding minaret which can be ascended. Be warned, the 133 steps can be tough going. Visitors should take care to wear long clothing.

4 Shop for souvenirs at the Mechouar Castle bazaar

This castle looms heavily over the city. Visitors are invited to take a tour of its spacious interior. But the main draw of the Mechouar Castle is the handicraft market which it houses. Whilst shopping around for gifts, you'll stumble across elaborately decorated camel saddles and carpets. No haggling is required, as the prices are all fixed.

5 Hike in the National Park

One could easily spend a week traversing the paths of the Tlemcen National Park. Located around the ruins of Mansourah, it consists of a number of forests, numerouswaterfalls and pools that are ideal for swimming. Wildlife tours can be arranged from the centre of town, allowing visitors to see some of the 100 bird species endemic to the Park.

Required travel documents for Algeria

Algeria is generally a safe destination to visit these days and; if procedures are properly followed; visitors should have few problems. A visa is required and can be obtained from the Algerian embassy. It's wise to leave four weeks for processing (http://www.algerianembassy.org.uk/). Vaccinations may be needed, so consult your GP before travelling. Algeria is also one hour ahead of the UK.
Although it is off the beaten track, Tlemcen is an elegant and ancient city with some truly spectacular historical sights. The bazaar is lively, the weather is hot and the people are hospitable, making it a fine choice for an offbeat city break.
