#Cairo is the capital of #Egypt and the largest city in Africa. It was founded by the Fatimid dynasty in AD 969. Nicknamed "the city of a thousand minarets", Cairo has long been a centre of the region's political and cultural life. It is also associated with Ancient Egypt as it is close to the ancient cities of Memphis, Giza and Fustat which are near the Great Sphinx and the pyramids of Giza. - www.gdecooman.fr portfolio, cours et stages photo à Lille, visites guidées de Lille.
