Mosque and Madrasa of Sultan Hassan

Mosque Cairo, Egypt

The two jewels of the ancient Mamluk culture Mosque and Madrasa of Sultan Hassan

The mosque-madrasa of Sultan Hassan was built using huge blocks of stone. Because of its impressive size, the mosque has become a symbol of architectural supremacy developed during the Mamluk regency century. In front of the imposing mosque your eyes will be immediately captured towards the blue sky. When you lower your eyes you will find yourself instead in front of the amazing spectacle of a magnificent mosaic paved courtyard, an unprecedented specimen in all of Cairo.
