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. Otherwise not much to see here. Otherise, not worth the cost of admission. The map that I bought at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina showed a Ptolemaic cemetery nearby.... More

The tombs were discovered in 1933 when the government decided to level the ground to build a soccer court leading to this magnificent find. Near the tombs were military barracks named after... More

The tombs are quite complex . they have stairs, small temples inside, offerings tables, wells, one has 6 sfinxes, and some mortuary chambers. One big sarcofagus... More

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
