Oran: Attractions and more...



Oran is a fascinating mix of old and new. The old quarter of Oran boasts of Arab, Berber, Ottoman and Spanish architecture—the Cathedral of Saint-Louis, the 18th century Great Mosque, and the Marabout Sidi Mohammed El Haouri from 1793. In the new part, don’t miss the Cathedral de Sacré Coeur, which is a public library today and a standing example of French architecture.

Explore the castle of Santa Cruz on top of the mountain Abdelqa, in the city centre, and the amusement parks on the outside.

Visit the Demaeght Museum for its exhibits on prehistoric archaeological findings from throughout the Magreb, and the history of Oran.  

Oran’s coast is dotted with sandy beaches and little cafes. Notable beaches include Ain El Turk, Les Andalouses, Canastel, Kristel, Mostaganem, Cap Blanc, Madagh Plage, Cap Falcon and Sablettes. While here try a popular Oran delicacy, Karantika, with glass of typical Algerian Etey (mint tea).
