Oran is a city in northwestern Algeria, situated on the Mediterranean coast. A popular destination here is Mt. Abdelkader: at over 375 meters above sea level, this iconic mountain preserves Oran's history. Featured at the summit are the Santa Cruz fort and Chapel of the Virgin Mary. Another fascinating site is Casbah (Citadel): the Casbah fortress located in Mers El-Kebir (army port 2 kilometers east of Oran City) was constructed during pre-colonial North Africa for defense purposes.
Currency in Algeria: Algerian dinar (DZD)
