  • This is an an average mosque, nothing of special interest, but if you visit the medina, have been to the Palace of the Bey and want something more in the area to do, then make a quick stop.  more »
  • This mosque dating from the time Turkish to Constantine (15-1830) is located on the upper part (or Kasbah) of the Medina and part of 'privileged buildings' of ancient arabo-turque city, compared to the lower or 'Souika' or were concentrated more modest dwellings, retail details and even (polluting) workshops of the city (Tanneries, dinanderie, etc.) as well as some plots... The mosque 'El Ghazel' owes its name to one of them or 'Souk of the weavers' so. Then it became a church during the French colonization after the capture of Constantine in 1836; There were undertaken including a large dome which is said that it is the replica (probably on a smaller scale) that of Florence in Italy. The independence of the country, it became a mosque and took the name of Salah Bey. With the Palace of Hadj Ahmed Bey (adjoining), these two monuments are tourist sites to visit around the small plot animated 'If the Ali' to Constantine. Currently, the same mosque is the subject of restoration work. The ideal time for a site visit: early morning and afternoon. Good walk!
