ORAN– Algeria’s second-largest city is somewhat off the main tourist route. Indeed, Oran is perhaps best known for being the birthplace of the North African ‘RAI’ music movement. Nevertheless, Oran is well worth a diversion, featuring particularly impressive historical attractions. These include its Great Mosque, built in 1769 and open to the public, and the Palace of Culture. The beautiful domed Cathedral The Sacred Heart was converted into a library shortly after Algerian independence and is also a good place to while away some time. The Place of 1st November is Oran’s main square and a popular destination for those newly arrived in town. Aside from the city’s heritage, Oran is a bustling city with plenty to do, including theatre performances and restaurants. In the summer months, Oran’s sandy beaches are a popular way to escape the heat.

GHARDAIA– Located around 600 km / 375 miles south of Algiers in the Mzab Valley is Ghardaia. Listed as a World Heritage Site since 1982, the town is a popular tourist destination. Originally a fortified Berber medieval oasis settlement, the town’s main landmarks today include an interesting market and a beautiful underground mosque, where it is possible to escape the summer heat. The Mzab Valley’s towns, including Ghardaia, are particularly well known for their colorful carpets.

TAMANRASSE– Is located deep in the Sahara Desert in southern Algeria. As the largest Tuareg settlement, this desert town has plenty of charming features. The town is also the gateway to the Ahaggar Mountains. Visitors to Tamanrasset shouldn’t miss out on a chance to explore the desert.

DJEMILA– Once a spectacular Roman city known as Cuicul, Djemila is nowadays a small village set amidst the mountains of the northern coast of Algeria. The village is home to some very well-preserved Roman ruins, including Roman baths, forum and a temple.

TIMIMOUN– Timimoun has everything a desert village should have. As well as lines of distinctive red mud buildings, this pretty oasis is surrounded by sand dunes and palm trees aplenty. At sunset, the ancient salt lake becomes a sea of red waves.

TLEMCEN– Located in north-western Algeria, Tlemcen was once the capital of central Maghreb and a thriving trading town. There’s still plenty to see in the town, including the Great Mosque, built in the 12th century, and the Mechouar, which was originally the site of the governors’ palace. Just out of town are the ruins of Mansourah. This ancient walled town once covered a vast area.
