The historic core is centered around the 1st November square next to the Bey palace. This is a not too hectic area which can be easily explored on foot, starting from the 1st November square and moving south towards the Great Library (the former Sacred Heart Cathedral of Oran).
The historic core is not tourist-oriented. Some historic buildings such as the palace of the Bey for instance are in a poor condition and not accessible for tourists. The restaurants are mostly of the fast food/ grilled meat type.
