If you are ever fortunate enough to step into the glorious country of Algiers, please don’t miss out on the opportunity of visiting the North Western Islamic Centre of Tlemcen. It might not be a high profile tourist destination, but is nevertheless a beautifully unconventional place to visit. Tlemcen or Tlemsan as it was earlier known, is rightfully known as the spiritual capital of Algeria and also happens to be one of the country’s commercial nerve centers. The prime centers of attraction for visitors here include the Great Mosque of Tlemcen, El-Ourit Waterfalls, the Palais El Mechouar, the Bellhassen Mosque, the Pac de Loisirs Lalla Setti and the Plateau Lalla Setti. The common factor that binds all of these places is the amazing tranquility, since these are all located at a very scene and old part of the city. While the new city of Telmcen boasts of being a modern, commercial metropolis of sorts, the old city exudes the charm of medieval Islamic culture in all of its splendor.

Certainly a visit to the Islamic paradise of Tlemcen is definitely a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and you have to be here now!
