Catacombs of Kom El-Shoqafa:

It was one of the Seven Wonders of the Medival World. The Catacombs were discovered by accident in 1900 and are considered the largest Roman burial site in Egypt which hosts a great combination of Pharaonic and Greco-Roman designs celebrating all traditions of the dead. Initially, the Catacombs were built in the 2nd century to be the burial site for one wealthy family, however, later on, usurpers used the catacombs as general burial sites.


Visit Pompey's Pillar

On a rocky hilltop in the middle of the great city of Alexandria, lies the only known free-standing column to ever exist in Egypt and the largest monolith column ever erected. The Pillar is 25 meters high, made from one single piece of red granite quarried in Aswan, and is said to be built over the ruins of the Serapeum, a temple complex dedicated to the Greco-Egyptian god Serapis, adding a great historical depth to the site. The Pillar is a legendary element of power, and grandeur that conveys some dazzling facts about the Roman period in Egypt that, in turn, enlarged the city to new heights able to captivate the souls, minds, and eyes of visitors from all over the world.

Visit The Citadel of Sultan Qaitbay

The Citadel was built in the 15th Century by the Mamlouk Sultan Qeitbay to guard the city against the threat of Crusaders. This wonderful Islamic Monument was built on the ruins of the old Alexandria Lighthouse that was constructed by Ptolemy 11 in the 3rd Century B.C. and was damaged during an Earthquake in 1303 A.C. during the reign of the Mamlouk King Sultan Qaitbay. The citadel is considered one of the most important defensive strongholds guarding cities against all naval attacks.

The Library of Alexandria

The Library of Alexandria was reborn in October 2002 to reclaim the mantle of its ancient namesake. It is not just an extraordinarily beautiful building; it is also a vast complex where the arts, history, philosophy, and science come together. Moreover, the myriad activities it offers have made it a place for open discussion, dialogue, and understanding.
