Grand Erg Occidental
Les oasis à foggaras et les ksour du Grand Erg Occidental is part of the Tentative list of Algeria in order to qualify for inclusion in the World Heritage List.
The oases in the Saouara Valley and the Grand Erg Occidental form a cultural landscape in the Sahara desert. Foggaras - traditional irrigation systems – are used for palm groves and the supply for a number of Ksour (fortified villages). Adrar, Timimoun and Tidikelt are some of the larger oasis towns.
