The Saladin Citdal is located atop a hill right outside of central Cairo, about a 10min. taxi ride from Tahir Square. It Citadel complex is made up of several mosques, including the impressive Muhammad Ali Mosque. And while the complex has an austere beauty, one of my favorite parts was the view of Cairo from above. It's just of nice to enjoy the sprawling chaos that is Cairo from a nice quiet spot above it all, if only for a few minutes. This is definately a Cairo top-5.
