Islamic Monuments in Cairo: A Practical Guide by Caroline Williams
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Cairo's Islamic monuments are part of an interrupted tradition that spans over a thousand years of building activity. No other Islamic city can equal Cairo's sperctacular heritage, nor trace its historical and architectural development with such clarity. The discovery of this historical core, first visually by 19th-century artists, then intellectually by 20th-century art specialists, now - at the turn of the millennium - awaits the satisfaction of the general visitor. This fifth edition continues to walk the visitor around 200 years of the city's most interesting Islamic monuments. It also keeps pace with recent developments with updated and revised material.

Author Biography
