Saliba Street, (شارع صليبة), which literally means "Cross Street", is one of the old main streets in Islamic Cairo, Egypt. It runs from the Cairo Citadel in the north to the Mosque of Ibn Tulun in the south. The street is the site of many old buildings, including schools, mosques, hospitals, and mausoleums. Saliba Street is the location of the largest mosque in Cairo and one of the oldest mosques in Africa, Ibn Tulun Mosque, which is one of the very few remaining Abbasid Mosques found in Cairo after the burning of the Fustat.
