Cairo Citadel Aqueduct to be one of Egypt’s major tourist attractions by 2021

Cairo Citadel Aqueduct is one of the most famous parts of the historic walls that once surrounded the Egyptian capital, Cairo. The landmark construction is located in Old Cairo.

The Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities is currently working on developing the archaeological areas and museums associated with the wall. This includes restoration of the historic wall and the surrounding area, with the development plan expected to be completed in 2021.
