In many big cities, like Constantine, Algeries, Oran, Annaba and Telemcen, you find European architecture and Islamic as well, some cities still intact some of them of them get ruined by the French and earthquakes as well, in Algiers, Oran Constantine and Telemcen some of the old cities still exists, mosques palaces.. and those are Algerian architecture build in the middle ages.

Deep in Algeria you find cities with local architecture and few French style, those cities are entirely build by Algerian and calcified world heritage such as Ghardaia, Eloued and Ouarglah, many cities are newly built after 1962

Even though the French archutcture dominate the magor Algerian cities, Algerian were forced by French army to build those cities for sometimes just food. Algerian build them with Algerian row matirials as the country was apart of France till 1962. Algeria was divided to 4 district under the French rule starting from 90 to 94 Paris now is 75, Algiers was the second (French) city after Paris then Marseille
