Qaitbey Fort is an Alexandrian landmark, a doughty citadel buffeted by wind-borne spray, its flag forever rippling. Built during the 1480s and later beefed up by Mohammed Ali, it commands great views of the city and the spume-flecked Mediterranean. Within the restored keep there’s mosque whose minaret was blown away by the British in 1882.

The fort is thought to incorporate masonry from the legendary Pharos Ancient Alexandria’s lighthouse which once stood just offshore. One of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world, the Pharos transcended its practical role as a navigational aid and early warning system, becoming synonymous with the city itself.
