Overview of the tour in Oran

Our journey through Oran unfolds with a visit to the Grand Mosque, a 2015 architectural gem symbolizing Algeria's religious significance.

Next is the Bullfighting Arena, a walk inside the landmark, tracing the bull's route. Murdjajo mountain beckons, unveiling Spanish fortifications and the miraculous Santa Cruz Church.

A sumptuous lunch awaits after a morning full of sights.

Next is the Bey's Palace, perched atop Spanish fortifications since 1792, which leads us through Ottoman history. The old town was captivated by the Ottoman Pacha's Mosque, Letang Garden, and the main squares of the French and Spanish sides.

After the old town, we headed to the main square of the European side of the city, which was marked by its imposing monuments. Marvel at the Ex-Synagogue, a Jewish history landmark, and the Cathedral-turned-library, adorned with Romano-Byzantine elegance.

Maghreb Square showcases the Grand Post and La Bastille Market vista. Dive into the rhythm at Disco Maghreb, a music hub for local Rai songs. Boulevard de la Soumam's Haussmannian charm enchants before a seafront stroll concludes the day, embracing the Mediterranean breeze.
