The vast majority of the population are classified as Arab or Berber – and are Sunni Muslims. However, there are significant Christian and Roman Catholic communities.

With seven World Heritage UNESCO sites, vast areas of unexplored wilderness, a captivating capital and a well-preserved Mediterranean coast, Algeria has much to offer to its visitors.
