I can imagine that during French time the square looked different. Maybe it is due to winter but the fountains did not work. It is the heart of Oran and could have been kept in better conditions. However, local hang around and you do not...More

Aside from the convivial homeless men sleeping there, there was not much social activity going on. The old Mairie was under restoration and invisible beneath its shrouds but a good sign that care is being taken with some of the grand old buildings meriting conservation....More

A major impression of Algeria on a recent trip was just how much more interesting and spectacular than expected the city of Algiers turned out to be - and how the opposite applied to Oran. I know it's meant to be more 'lively' and 'open'...More
