Seen Art

Seen Art Gallery is considered to host one of the best art collection in Algiers. It specialises in contemporary art, design and art objects, and houses the exhibitions of many Algerian artists. Come by to admire and, perhaps, take home a unique souvenir.


Dive into the colourful fabrics and wonderful garments of Algerian culture. Traditional clothes are woven with great dexterity and make an ideal souvenir from the region. Also carpets and jewels are popular and can be found on every second corner in the city centre. For local woodwork and art work, you should try to drop into one of the galleries: you might even catch an artist at work and ask him questions about local craft. Keep in mind that stores might stay closed on Fridays, as it is common in many Islamic countries.
