Cairo Sights



Harraniyya Review

Intricate, handwoven carpets are the big draw in this small village, but you can see all kinds of textiles and pottery as well. The Ramses Wissa Wassef Art Centre—named after the family largely responsible for developing the town's crafts into an industry—is the best place to see them. Bring lunch and enjoy the lavish gardens between touring the workshops. Saturday through Wednesday are the best days to come.
