I really loved this place. We paid Egp 40 each and it took us about an hour to walk around. The place is amazing and still got Egyptian encriptions on the walls. I highly recommend you visiting this place

There isn’t really much written to learn about this spot, but since Alexander the Great once visited, Siwa keeps it intact as a tourist attraction. I wish I knew more about it because it is a neat-looking place.

A history that may be forgotten if not visited. Knowledgeable guides are important in this kind of visits. Going up is hard for who has knee problems.

As the great Alexander himself came here to received the blessing of becoming the new egyptian pharaoh I think it was a must see for me. It's not in very good condition though
