It is not easy to distinguish well intentioned versus imperialistic designs. The former Hospital installations that reached various phases before conclusion-transformation as well as the post-missionary school as well as the neighbourhood (proximity to the sea, 'Kuwaitidad') form a foreground-background metaphorically and literally.

Amricani or better al-Athar al-Islamliyyah museum. Free visit ! Really hidden. You must go to the first flat (nothing on the ground floor). You will see some unbelievable old treasures, 2 or 3 thousand years old!.
