Egypt: Cairo: other - The Qaitbay Wakala

The Qaitbay Wakala

The Qaitbay Wakala was built in 1480 by Sultan Qaitbay. From the outside, the building displays a regular repetitive facade created by units with a first floor large opening, a mashrabiya panel with a latticed window on top, on the second floor and a group of three windows on the third floor. The first floor is built of stone, while the rest of the building is brick. Within, the sides surround a large courtyard.
