Hôtel de l’Oasis Rouge
Lonely Planet review
The Hôtel de l’Oasis Rouge , originally constructed by colonial missionaries in the early 1900s, is a fine old building and it is worth a wander around inside to see the arched hallways, the courtyard and the walls, which are decorated with traditional designs. It also contains a one-room museum with a small collection of local fabrics, paintings, pottery and basket weaving, most of which is for sale. Another fine example of Timimoun’s architecture is the ornate Porte du Soudan , also constructed during colonial times and oriented towards the south.
