Fortunately, these places don’t get many tourists as they are hard to reach or because their names are not musical enough
The list below is showing you few of them and explain in short words why you have to visit them
- Ibn Tulun mosque. The oldest standing mosque in Egypt and Africa. The mosque is occupying a larger area than any other mosque in Egypt. When other mosques were renovated and rebuilt this one remained with the oldest structure. The place is very charming, peaceful and breathtaking when you climb its minaret to watch Cairo from above.
- City of the dead…………..The name itself says it all……….. People dying to go there. That day I finished my tour, watched my group left with the van to their hotel when I’ve decided to stay for a little bit more to watch the sunset from my favorite spot there. 2 tourists were wandering by themselves and they got lost. They approached me to ask how they can get to the main road
- thank God we found someone to ask for directions…….. We were so scared to be here by ourselves when it gets dark
- Yep, I understand how you feel……… this place used to scare me too when I was alive.
Poor guys, they ran too fast before I could explain that I was kidding.
PS. Don’t go there by yourself
- The Cave churches. In the middle of the noisy crowded Cairo, suddenly, 2 huge churches were decided to be cut into El Mokattam hills. In the way to reach them, you will have to drive through the Garbage city.
