Giza is most well known for its famous pyramids. Giza's apogee coincided with the reign of Salah al-Din when its Sunday market attracted vast crowds. But the area's vulnerability to floods caused problems and it wasn't until Ismail laid the Pyramids Road, drained swamps and built a palace in the 1860s that Giza became fashionable again. As Giza's population topped a million, a wave of development devoured the crumbling villas.
