A monument to the warrior from the resistance revolution, emir Abd El-Kader. It's also a square in the centre of Algiers, and you inevitably walk onto it if you're following the main street.
Jean-Louis (JLBG) explained that Place Emir Abd El-Kader before the independence was called Place Général Bugeaud and that it is somewhat absurd, as Bugeaud was the French General that in 1837-1844 won over Abd El-Kader, the leader of the resistance to the French army!
