The Algerian city of Oran is located in the north west Mediterranean Sea coast and is Algeria's second largest city. It is a major port, industrial centre and centre of learning in western Algeria and is located around 430 km from Algiers. Founded in 903 by Moorish Andalusian traders, the city has had a long and interesting past. In its time the city has also been ruled by the Spanish, the Turks and since 1831, the French. There is a good selection of hotels in the city to suit most budgets. The city's restaurants tend to offer a good selection of Algerian specialities.
In, or near, the city visitors will find cinemas, arts centres, an open air theatre, a museum, the district of Sidi El Houari, the historic city centre of Oran, the Medina Djedida with its artisanal products, the cathedral and some lovely coastal resorts.
Oran can be reached by ferry from the ports of Marseilles, Sète, Alicante and Almería.
The Spanish city of Almeria is located in the south east of the country and lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast. The Andalusian city is a major destination along the region's coast which is characterised by virgin beaches and a semi desert ecosystem inland. The city used to be one of the most important ports in the Caliphate of Cordoba and its narrow streets are filled with whitewashed buildings, a citadel and cathedral. In addition to history and culture, the city offers visitors beaches, mountains and coastal nature reserves and a gastronomy that will make for a memorable visit.
A popular attraction in the city is its cathedral which looms large over the heart of the ancient city. The cathedral looks more like a fortress than a place or worship thanks to its towers and thick walls and its design is in reaction to the frequent Berber pirate attacks that the city endured in the past. Also located close by is the Convent of Purasand and the Episcopal Palace.
The port of Almería has a marina with moorings for pleasure boats and normally provides connections to Ghazaouet (Algeria), Oran (Algeria), Nador (Morocco) and Melilla.
