The summer palace of the kings. Wasn't too impressed with the architecture of the Al-Haramlik Palace but the royal gardens are very nice. Perfect for a leisurely stroll. The highlight is definitely a view of the Mediterranean Sea.

El montazah is always a good place for kids to play in gardens and enjoy a sunny day It's a bit expensive to get inside for common people but still worth it

Just walking in the garden, watching the amazing palace, with beautiful plants, is just spectacular. You would wish to walk forever, just imagining the king and the princesses walking there is just breathtaking You must go for a walk
