The Citadel, Cairo: How To Reach, Best Time & Tips

About The Citadel

Built-in 1176 by Saladin, the Citadel of Cairo is one of the most prominent places to see in Cairo. Though the original foundation is no longer in existence, the structure is still formidable and has a unique appeal. Here, the primary attraction site is the Mosque of Muhammad Ali.

It is also called the Alabaster Mosque and boasts of white stone minarets that are disproportionate. Moreover, you can move north-east and visit the Al-Nasir Mosque. If you want to experience a surreal vision of the city, go to the Gawhara Terrace and admire the picturesque scenic views.
