The scintillating City of the Dead, anecdotally known as Al-Qarafa, is so full of life and amenities that if you sum, you realize it is more town than slum.
The lively City of the Dead is a treasure trove of masterpieces from almost all eras of Egyptian history. Walking there gives you an encyclopedic tour of Egyptian history. True to the vision of some of its founders, the City of the Dead has the power to entertain the mind and retain the body. Around 100,000 Cairenes live here amongst the dead. At the pinnacle of Islamic art, the monuments are architected to articulate the vision of the stellar dweller.
Picnic among the graves in the City Beyond the Walls! It is a kaleidoscope of culture.
