Cairo Citadel, as the name suggests, is a magnificent fortress in the Cairo city of Egypt. It was constructed under the aegis of Salah ad-Din - an Abbasid Ruler, between 1176 and 1183. is sometimes referred to as 'Mohamed Ali Citadel', since it contains the Mosque of Mohamed Ali.
from its walls you can see an interesting panoramic of old Cairo, the new fund and its pyramids.
