This is the official brief description of the UNESCO committee
"Tucked away amid the modern urban area of Cairo lies one of the world's oldest Islamic cities, with its famous mosques, madrasas, hammams and fountains. Founded in the 10th century, it became the new centre of the Islamic world, reaching its golden age in the 14th century."
(quoted from the official UNESCO website)
Cairo - what a huge city it was even back then! I was fascinated!! I especially loved strolling through those narrow streets of Islamic Cairo and felt like in a tale of 1001 nights!
