Magnificent beaches and big harbors, here what summarizes well the Oranie. The city of Oran deserves well his nickname of "El Bahia" that is to say the Radiant or the Charming one. She succeeded preserving his identity despite the succession of invaders (Spanish, Turkish and French). Rare are the cities that knew such a living together of the Moslem confessions, Jew and Christian, testified by its mosques, its synagogues and its churches. The region knew to form itself his own identity. She is recognized for his imposing cultural heritage, with notably the raï. This music style, also as sensual rebel, became the ambassador of the city through the world. Second city of the Oranie, Tlemcen, situated to 800 m of altitude, is the only city of Algeria to be able to praise itself to possess Moresque buildings of the quality of those of the Andalousia. These days, the one that one calls "the city of the cherries" is a place favorable to the relaxation and more pleasant to visit.
Mostaganem has, as for her, kept an old character, but equally opened to a modern economy. For proof, it suffices to go to the new neighborhood of Tijdit, where the beautiful beaches surroundings allow taking advantage of the sun in any season.
