Beyond doubt Zuweila Gate is the most impressive of the three remaining gates of the old Fatimid era city of Cairo. Ever since the Fatimids conquered Egypt and founded Cairo in 969 AD they paid special attention to defence. The two towers (minarets of the adjacent mosque) served as watch towers to check on possible hostile intrudors.
If you walk the 1.5 km from Bab Zuweila (originally part of the southern wall) to the northern gates (Bab al Futuh and Bab al Nasr) in the now partly restored northern wall, you get an idea of the size of the old city.

We have climbed to the top of the Bab Zuweila! Both towers were open so 4 of us split into 2 groups, each climbed one and took pictures of the other on the top. Despite of the awesome height, there were only 150 or so steps to reach the top. The last segment of the stairs, however, were bare metal bars of a hanging ladder in the air, not for the fainthearted. Once on the top, you’d have the best view of the authentic Old Cairo. You can see many towers among the endless buildings, 360 degrees at your foot.

The area is filthy and packed with people, cars and motor bikes. I felt uneasy and unsafe. I can only feel awful for the beautiful monuments and cultural artifacts that are surrounded by slums.

Out of the three Fatimid gates that remained standing nowadays, Bab Zuwayla is the most dramatic, with its crowning fifteen-century minarets. It leads the visitors to a bazaar quarter that is as full of life today as it was in the Middle Age.
In the early Mameluke period, the sultans use to sit on the platform between the two towers to watch the procession of the Mahmal, the ceremonial palanquin that accompanied the annual pilgrimage caravan to Mecca. However, this gate was also a place for public executions, and the heads of criminals were displayed above the gates on spikes. Even Tumanbay, the last Mameluke sultan of Egypt was hanged here in 1517, after the country's conquest by the Ottomans. Tumanbay’s rope broke on the first two attempts before his luck ran out. His body remained suspended from the gate for three days, and then was buried
The views from towers are spectacular, although part of the neighborhood is sadly neglected.

Bab Zuweila (or Zuwayla) dates to the days of Fatimid Cairo and was completed in 1092 AD. Located in the Islamic district of Al-Darb al-Ahmar, this historic landmark is one of three remaining medieval gates in the old city walls of Cairo. Historic Cairo was named a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979 so you don’t want to miss this area! Two minarets flank the gate and are open to visitors for a nominal fee. Although it’s a tight climb up a spiral staircase, the view at the top is worth the effort.

My husband and I tried to visit Bab Zuweila during our visit to Cairo in early December. I just wanted to update user @jennasypr's review from October and say that Alex is still hanging around Bab Zuweila trying to scam people. He approached us as we walked toward the gates and told us the exact same line about being an English teacher and historian. He tried to follow us into the Bab, saying that he was just going to pray. We felt so weirded out by him we left and came back later. We saw him scare away another group from entering as well. When we came back later, Alex hung back but signaled to a man he's working with inside the mosque who claims to be an employee but will try to get you to pay for showing you locked rooms inside the mosque that you didn't ask to see. We heard the Bab was nice but fighting through multiple scams to visit was just too much.

This gate borders the south side of Fatimid Cairo, and together with its correspondent on the north side, Bab el Futuh, allows one to realize the considerable size of the city at that time (the Fatimid dynasty reigns over Cairo for two centuries, since 973 until 1170 ca, Bab Zuweila itself is dated 1092).
It should also be noted that under the further dynasties of the Ayyubids (1170-1250) and the Mamluks (1250-1517), Cairo is still growing and its bult form is further transformed. In fact, on the one hand the city reaches, on the years between the 13th and 14th centuries, to be the largest in the world outside China: its inhabitants are estimated at around 500,000, when the largest European cities, such as Paris and Milan, at that time certainly surpassed 100,000 inhabitants, but not 200,000. On the other hand, the buildings - both civil and religious - belonging to the Fatimid period, and contained in the space between the two mentioned gates, were largely replaced by the ones constructed by the successive dynasties.
However the function of the two gates, north and south, in marking the limits of the Fatimid city, remains; just as - in contrast to what happened within the walls - the appearance that the doors had in the Fatimid era remains on the whole; an appearance that, according to scholars, has little Islamic, recalling rather Byzantine architectural models.
It's possible to climb the minarets, but we didn't do it: the vision alone of such an illustrious and well-preserved witness from Cairo in the past was already sufficient satisfaction for us.

Bab Zuweila is one of the remaining gates to the old city of Cairo featuring two minarets (tall towers) which one can climb for a splendid view of Islamic Cairo. There are 3 levels with no elevator and, although stairs to level 1 are relatively comfortable to ascend, steep steps on a narrow, claustrophobic and unlit spiral demand a level of fitness and a head for heights at levels 2 & 3. The entrance is LE50 for non-Egyptians and no admissions occur after 4.30pm since it closes at 5pm.

I was wandering around Bab Zuweila when a man called Alex approached me and said he’s an english teacher and a historian. He assured me he doesn’t need my money and only wants to practice his english. He told me about Bab Zuweila was the place where Mohammed Ali died. Then he suggested to accompany me to the Blue Mosque. He said the top of the minaret has the best view, better than Cairo Tower. Upon entering the site, he asked for 100EGP. I was in doubt as I know visiting mosques is free. He kept on insisting that the caretaker needs to record it and it is government price, even without a ticket or a receipt. I gave the money anyway because I did not want to argue with him, and I know he’ll be harassing me. He was already hitting on me when he accompanied me in the minaret, suggesting I should get an Egyptian boyfriend. He even asked for a selfie with me using my phone because “he doesn’t have battery”. He wanted the photo to be sent to his Whatsapp and was very aggressive in saving his number in my address book. It was a horrible experience. I had to warn other tourists going to Bab Zuweila to be cautious of this guy and his sidekick.
