About Bab al-Nasr

About Bab al-Nasr

Islamic Cairo’s Bab al-Nasr is currently one of three remaining gates which are set in the walls of the Old City. This towering fortified gate with massive three-storey stone towers on each side flanks an arched gateway.

Exploring the walls of Bab al-Nasr provides you with excellent insight into the purpose of this imposing structure, slit windows providing light to rooms and storage spaces within the wall, making it possible for an army to defend the city without ever having to leave it.
