Oujda, border town, millennial city
Oujda today has more than 500,000 inhabitants. This Moroccan border town is located in the far north-east of the country, on the border of the Eastern Rif region. Thanks to its proximity to the port of Nador and Algeria (5 km away) it acts as a crossroads between the two countries. The medina of Oujda, with its magnificent Arab-Muslim charm, dates from the year 996, close to when Montpellier was created (985). The medina is rich in monuments of great historical value. Not far away, Lalla Aïcha Park covers an area of about 20 hectares. Created in 1935, it is a place of relaxation and hosts a museum. The city of Oujda is one of the most traditional cities in Morocco. It should be noted that remains of primitive human activity can be found in the surrounding caves (flint, spikes, etc.). Specimens of stone age activities were collected around Oujda before the arrival of the Romans.
