Coptic Cairo is a fascinating site full of history and religiously important to Christians, Jews, and Muslims. It’s a maze of ancient and modern churches and monasteries, set within the walls of the fortress of Babylon, founded in the 6th century BC and expanded by the Roman Emperor Trajan in AD 98, Coptic Cairo is a fascinating counterpoint to the rest of the city, and it holds the beautiful Coptic Museum. Here, you can visit the oldest church, the oldest mosque, and the oldest synagogue.
When in Cairo, it is basically impossible to miss the Salah El-Din Citadel , one of the world’s greatest monuments to medieval warfare. Resembling a typical early medieval fortress, with large imposing gateways, towers and high defending walls, the Citadel is one of Cairo’s main attractions and probably the most popular non-pharaonic monument in the Egyptian capital.
Sharia Al Muizz, as it’s usually called, named after the Fatimid Caliph who conquered Cairo in AD 969, was Cairo’s grand thoroughfare, once chock-a-block with storytellers, entertainers, and food stalls. Al Muizz Street is the largest exhibition of Islamic architecture throughout the ages, from the Fatimid Cairo to the Ayyubids, the Mamluks, all the way to the Ottomans and modern Egypt.
