visiting the Citadel was worth the trek there. The history of the place was very interesting and to be up close and look around was a good opportunity.

The whole citadel is well preserved and they are finally taking care of the ancient heritage.
I love coming back to it cause it’s one of the landmarks of the modern Egyptian civilization.
It has many memories for me and I’m sure for many others and I’m always gonna come back to visit this beautiful historical landmark.
