When we visited most of it was under restoration, hence difficult to walk around and see the the chapelle fully.

The chapelle does not appear to be open to the public. It sits in front of the impressive Fort of Santa Cruz and the sculpture of the angel over the peak definitely makes a photogenic photo-op from the many photos you will undoubtedly take from this amazing spot in the city.

The place is under renovation, beside the nice view on the Mediterranean sea, there is nothing to do there. Plus, only few places to park your car.

It's worth the effort to come up here for the views out over the city below. The chapel itself, however, is really nothing special and could do with a good paint job (as could most of the city of Oran).

Wonderful view of the city from the Church. Even better was the uphill drive to get there. Police followed us everywhere, but they were very nice.

What the guide books neglect to tell you about Oran is that the view from the city's main promenade is not of the beach, but rather of container docks, oil storage tanks and a power station.
