Annaba is in the extreme northeast of Algeria. It is close to the border with Tunisia and can even be visited as a day trip from there. Annaba was first settled by Phoenicians as Hippo Regius and allied with Carthage. Today Annaba is a very European city. The green main street, the Cours de la Revolution has a vibrant afternoon and early evening life. One of the main sights in town is surprisingly enough a Basilica. The basilica of St. Augustine brings your mind to the contemporary Sacre Coeur in Paris.
