Description: One of the world's oldest Islamic cities survives Tucked away in the midst of the modern urban Cairo; the historic quarter holds famous mosques, madrasas, hammams and fountains. When it was founded in the 10th century it became the new centre of the Islamic world, reaching its peak in the 14th century. --WHMNet paraphrase from the description at WHC Site, where additional information is available.
