Kasbah of Algiers

I've been here!

The Kasbah is a unique kind of medina, or Islamic city. It stands in one of the finest coastal sites on the Mediterranean, overlooking the islands where a Carthaginian trading-post was established in the 4th century BC. There are the remains of the citadel, old mosques and Ottoman-style palaces as well as the remains of a traditional urban structure associated with a deep-rooted sense of community.

Trivia

  • Casbah actually is in reference to a castle or “citadel”, a stronghold of sorts and served as the main quarter of defense of Algiers during their battle from French conquerors.
  • Algiers with its Kasbah is a small town built on top of an irregular hill which is divided in two cities: the High City and Low City.
  • Travelers may get lost in this labyrinth-kind of place but the view from the sea will guide them to where they should be. Yet, this extraordinary place is still at risk of devastation due to the current issue of overpopulation.

Year of Inscription: 1992
