For over 700 years, Egypt's rulers were housed in the Citadel, a vast area built by Saladin in the 12th century. Its walls encompass many wonderful buildings, chief among which is the 19th-century Muhammad Ali Mosque, a repository of the finest Islamic art. Please note that all visitors to Islamic religious buildings should remove their shoes and women should wear a scarf to cover their head and shoulders.
