Grand Central Stations: Cairo Ramses Station

1 x 52 HD
Broadcaster:  Voyage

Beyond the pyramids and the citadel, Cairo, the largest city in the Arab world, is also home to a fascinating railway station. Built in 1856 as the terminal of the first rail link from Alexandria to Cairo, the station, known today as Ramses station, is both a strategic place in terms of transport and a unique location for social interactions.

 

We meet intellectuals, travellers and station staff to discover how the station, its Islamic-Andalousian architecture and the eclectic Egyptian crowds who walk across its hall have become a source of inspiration for writers and film directors.
