Constantine, eastward, perched at the foot of the giddy gorges of Rummel, could have been an eagle's amazing nest. It owes its name to the Roman Emperor Constantine who ordered the construction of several buildings. Traditional, austere, it is the bastion of Arabic and Muslim culture. Its Mosque, Abd El-Kader, lodging the University of Islamic Sciences, is one of the biggest in Africa....
This suspended bridge spans the gorges 175m above the Rhumel river.
The city of Constantine is located on a rocky plateau 649 metres above sea level. It is cut off from the other regions by deep gorges and has very fertile land.
As a defence strategy, the city was built on a rocky plateau; its unique location also required many bridges to be built.
Eight civilisations have occupied Constantine throughout history: the Berber-Numids, Phoenicians, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Turks, French and Berber-Arabs.
In Constantine, the most photographed constructions are the bridges; many tourists come all the way here just to see them.
This footbridge connects the train station district to the city centre.
