Cairo is a city of many treasures; historical sites, ancient places of worship of all major religions and even the last surviving ancient wonder of the world are sprinkled around its neighbourhoods. There are many ways to explore this richness but arguably the best is on foot. A stroll across a section of town can easily lead you to discover hidden gems like tiny workshops that you would have missed otherwise.
One of those walks starts in Ataba and leads to the very end of El-Moez Street. When you bring a guidebook you will find out the history of the many old buildings, mosques and other historically significant buildings. But when you have the eye of a photographer you will find the beauty that is hiding in the smallest of details.
