fortify the city of Alexandria

fortify the city of Alexandria

This fortress was built on the maritime border next to the eastern port to fortify the city of Alexandria and protect it from war campaigns coming from the north and any enemy coming from the external side, especially because there is a conflict between it and the Ottoman Empire, which began waging wars and military campaigns on the Islamic East instead of Europe, so Sultan Qaitbay wanted to fortify the Egyptian ports
