If you want to see a country that literally hasn't moved forward in 60 years then Algiers, Algeria is for you. The Casbah is the perfect example of a country living in the 1940s-1950s. Not even the paint has been changed in 60 years. The...More

Other reviewers have suggested starting at the top which is good advice. Its a labyrinth of narrow streets and alleys and the best advice is to feel adventurous and explore! As long as you head downhill you'll never get lost. I've seen comments that it...More

Just to take a walk in this place is a trial, but worth while for a memory, do not expect to find it well maintained but, it will open your eyes to a world long forgotten by many Historians

Plenty of history between its walls. People were nice and very welcoming! I had some Garantita to fuel the long walk around the Kasbah. Delicious!
