Place Administrative

Edit This

If you want to take a little stroll in the Ville Nouvelle stop by the Place Administrative.
 
Here you find the city-hall ("Hôtel de Ville"), the Tribunal ("Palais de Justice") and the main post office. The buildings that flank the square are nothing spectacular. They are built with the uniformity of modern city architecture, except one apartment building, designed by Le Corbusier.
In the middle of the place there is a pretty, artificial basin, where you can stop and rest. Here the Meknassi meet in the evening.

If you cross the Avenue Bengazi from the south side of the Place Administrative you get to a quite run-to-seed side-strip. From here you have a beautiful view at the Medina skyline. Unfortunately the view is somewhat marred by a wire-fence.
