Been there many times. I worked in Oil (Seismic) Exploration for several years in Algeria. They call it the 'Tomb of the Christian" because there are images around the outside that resemble crosses. The inside is just a spiral narrow walkway that leads to an empty center room, not very big. All empty, no markings at all.


Visiting Algeria next month; going to add this to my itinerary if at all possible. Thanks for this.


Thank you for this information - you answered exactly the question I wanted to ask!


Found out that this will actually be part of my tour. Excellent. Looking forward to it.
