Cairo Egypt – Visit the Historic City

When visiting Cairo Egypt, it’s worthwhile to explore the city’s architectural and historical styles. The style of buildings varies depending on the historical era. The oldest sections of Cairo are two to four-story structures that are built of fired brick, covered with plaster. In some cases, the walls are shored up with half-timbering. Windows are covered with wooden lattice, and doors are massive and covered with carved wood. Some of these buildings feature separate quarters for men and women. The rural fringes of Cairo are typically made of fired brick.

A trip to Cairo Egypt is incomplete without seeing its historic city to watch Mixing the old with the new. The historic city is relatively small, pre-dating the 10th century Fatimid era and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. A wander through the historic city feels like stepping back in time, thanks to the intricate architecture and atmosphere. Be sure to visit the Alabaster Mosque, which is reminiscent of the New Mosque in Istanbul. You won’t find many other mosques with such exquisitely carved marble.
