A cultural hub of Algeria, the coastal city of Oran boasts a long and varied history, from its founding by Moorish merchants in the 10th century, through centuries of Spanish, Ottoman, and French rule, and Algeria's bloody war for independence.
Venture out of the city with trips to Tlemcen (Mosquée Sidi Boumediene, Citadelle et Palais El Mechouar, & more). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of Fort Santa Cruz, appreciate the extensive heritage of Place du 1er Novembre, pause for some serene contemplation at La Cathedrale du Sacre Coeur, and don't miss a visit to La Porte d'Espagne.
