Al-Qala'a Citadel

We hastily visited Islamic Cairo, again time was running short. Later we took a taxi to Citadel, hoping that it still opened. The taxi driver was nice English speaking guy, he explained to us various places of Cairo that we passed thru too. And I think the taxi fare he charged us was reasonable too. EGP 15, for brought us to the Citadel, waited us there for a while, and then back to Downtown Cairo, of course, after some negotiation.

As expected, Citadel was closed. So the photo was taken from the taxi when we went back to Downtown Cairo. The Citadel was home to Egypt's rulers from some 700 years, before became a military garrison. Now everybody can visit it.
