Casbah

Casbah of Algiers is the remarkable old town area. It’s an important UNESCO world heritage site. This unique Islamic neighbourhood that got its name from an Arabic word meaning “citadel” offers plenty for the site-seer.The Casbah of Algiers is founded on the ruins of old Icosium. It was a small city which, built on a hill, goes down towards the sea, divided in two: the High city and the Low city. One finds there masonries and mosques of the 17th century. There are old palaces, mosques, Ottoman-style buildings, ancient water fountains and doors as well as the famed Museum of Popular Arts and Traditions. The massive 16th century Citadel in the Casbah port area saved the city from various enemies and wars is a notable sight. See the series of cannons at 188m above sea level in Algiers’ stronghold.

The Casbah Coffee Club was a rock and roll music venue in West Derby, Liverpool, started by Mona Best in 1959 in the cellar of the family home. It became famous for being one of the locations where The Quarrymen/The Beatles started their musical carreer.
