Built on the flank of Jebel Bechar, nearly 800 meters above sea level, the town of Bechar and its mining centre are at the crossroads of several important Saharan roads between Tafilafet, Touat and Gourara. The ancient city, the ksar will hold the visitor’s attention as its palm grove of 20,000 trees, from where the view of Jebel Bechar is splendid at sunset.
