A United Nations study found it to have the greatest concentration of medieval architectural treasures in the Islamic world. While the street is famous for its Islamic architectural I enjoyed the people watching more.... More

Start from Khan el Khalili and buy your tickets for the mosques and madrasahs to visit on your way up the street. Stop at Mu'izz Cultural Centre to see the map off the area set out in the floor and enjoy a drink in the cafe in the first floor. Continue on and exit Bab el Fatouh, turn right and... More

One of the best places I ever been in Cairo. You enter the street and you already feel you are in the old era of Fatimid Egypt. A must-go place.

It is not a fancy street but it is really historical where you can discover the fine Islamic art. Well worth a visit, and only minutes away from the Khan khalili Market.Try and go at night to see all the buildings lite up. Its a walk though time for sure.
