Moving on to discover a second House within the City’s streets and other old house frontages. The House of  Amasyali is of a very ornate nature and considered one of the finer examples.

After your tour of the Houses, you will walk a short distance with your Guide to visit the local ‘Hanging Mosque’, a unique construction and is one of only a few Mosques in Egypt built on an upper level in order to have storage units underneath for shops and supplies.
