Its strategic position on a promontory of the Mokattam hills close to Cairo’s center grants it a commanding vantage point over the city and control of its skyline. It was one of the most impressive and ambitious military fortification projects of its day when it was built. These days, it is a conserved historical monument with mosques and museums.
