This minor site requires a taxi ride to get there. One of tombs was closed. I wanted to see the better preserved tomb because of its similarity to the Royal Tombs of Paphos.

I visited Mustafa Kamel Necropolis in December 2009. The location is in Roushdy (west of Stanley Bridge). As you are heading towards the Corniche from the tram track the entrance is on the left (sign only in Arabic). Entry cost is 20 EGP for foreigners. There were no other visitors when 2 of us visited. This site dates from around... More
