Where the kasbah once stood
The Place de la Kasbah is a huge square opposite the Place du Gouvermement, at the western entrance to the medina. It was remodeled in 1988 when the new City Hall (Hôtel de Ville) opened. The square is a large paved esplanade crowned by a curious modern concrete monument (I can't tell you what it is, as the sign was written in Arabic). This is where the Kasbah once stood. Today only the old mosque remains. Other buildings on the perimeter of the square are the Ottoman Hospital and Sadiki College.
