Twenty new panels designed according to special guiding techniques have been installed along Al-Muizz Street in Old Cairo in an attempt to facilitate tourists visiting the area. The panels will help visitors enrich their experience of the archaeological monuments the street contains. A map is drawn on every panel with background information available on every monument.

Mohsen Sayed Ali, secretary general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities at the Ministry of State for Antiquities, said the panels are the first phase of a project to improve access to the area's historical sites and restoration works underway.

Al-Muizz Street runs through the heart of Fatimid Cairo, gloried in its splendid Islamic architecture. But it became badly run down in time. It has taken almost 20 years of restoration work for the street to regain much of the splendour it saw in the days of the Fatimids, Ayoubids, Mamluks and Ottomans.
