"Cairo Citadel 3" Top 5 Page for this destination Cairo Citadel - Salah El Din Al Ayouby Citadel Tip by travelife


The Ottomans controlled Egypt in one way or another between 1517 and the early 20th century, except for a brief French occupation. Much of what we see of the Citadel actually dates from this period.

As a obvious sign left by the Ottomans is the pencil top minaret of the mosque built with Ottoman architecture.
