This ancient fortified city. around which present-day Algiers was built, is said to have possessed more works of Turkish, Arab and Berber art than the rest of the Algerian capital put together. But today the Casbah has be- come an overcrowded district, with hordes of children roam- ing the streets and abysmal living conditions for its esti- mated inhabitants. Rubbish is collected by donkeys the only method of transport for penetrating the Casbah's intricate maze of stepped alleys and lanes. What remains of (Is art is in peril. As a first step in the clean- up, it has been decided to evacuate and re-house families who live in some of the Cas- bah's most famous monuments. Many of these were occupied at Algeria's independence in by people flecked lo Al- giers from the countryside. At one time it was proposed that tile entire Casbah be evacuated and turned into a gigantic museum. An acute housing crisis in Algiers makes this impracticable. Among the monuments to be retrieved is the "Dar Soitan" (Sultan's residence of thc last two Turkish Deys (rulers) of Algiers. The Casbah is now to be put in the hands of a special com- mittee of experts and archi- tects.
