A beautiful place but very poorly maintained, it requires more attention and renovation. This is a historic gem to renovate in order to attract more visitors.

Ex-Place d'Armes, ex-Place of Revolution, ex-Place Emil Abdelkader, today's PLACE 1 NOVEMBRE is representing the Oran's major square and tourist attraction. It is a beautiful place and architectural complex located in the mid-town of Oran (Algeria's second town and most "European-like" one!), where are located representative buildings like the old Theatre-Opera (designed and erected at the end of XIX-th century...

Photogenic central square - easy to access with tram, full of children riding ponies and other animation.

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' than the capital, but you wouldn't know that from the Place du 1er Novembre: the... More
