"Often mythologized and even caricatured, the real, hillside Casbah is a flesh-and-stone cradle of Algerian independence and home to 80,000 people, some of whom are working tirelessly to preserve it."

The Casbah (Arabic: قصبة, qaṣabah, meaning citadel (fortress) is specifically the citadel of Algiers in Algeria and the traditional quarter clustered around it. More generally, a kasbah is the walled citadel of many North African cities and towns. The name made its way into English from French in the late 19th century (the Oxford English Dictionary states 1895), and often is spelled “kasbah,” but also “casbah.”
