RECONSTRUCTION OF THE BASILICA OF SAINT AUGUSTINE IN ALGIERS

Annaba_ridottoHaving accepted the request submitted by the Augustinians in Algiers, the Foundation has joined the international cooperation project to refurbish the Basilica of Saint Augustine of Hippo in Annaba.

Located on a hill a few kilometers from Algiers, the Augustinian Basilica is both a place of worship and a meeting point in which the various cultural universes, far from being separated, celebrate their joint values and interests which reach beyond the religion and ethnic and cultural traditions of each visitor. According to the latest figures, 18.000 Catholic, Muslim and Jewish tourists, visit the Basilica each year amongst which many are youths, students and even school children.
