Dedicated to the soldiers killed in the Algerian War of Independence, Memorial du Martyr occupies the grounds of an ancient fort. The memorial opened on the 20th anniversary of Algeria's independence in 1982. Reaching a height of 92 m (302 ft), it represents three palm leaves sheltering an "eternal flame." See three different statues of soldiers at the base of the palm leaves, marking different stages of the war that lasted from 1954 to 1962. Make sure to visit the museum beneath the monument, which tells the dramatic story of the war in graphic detail.
