Tourism and the Sea in Alexandria, Egypt
Travelers to Alexandria can enjoy both historical and modern elements of the city. The city’s Mamluk period spanned the thirteenth and sixteenth centuries, and medieval highlights can be toured by modern tourists. Modern Islamic buildings are equally impressive, including the Turbana Mosque and Citadel of Qaitbay. Alexandria is also known for its beaches, which have been designated as designated tourist areas. This city’s climate makes it the perfect place to enjoy the beach.

Dedicated to Serapis and built by Ptolemy III, the temple of Serapeum is considered one of several non secular centres in Alexandria. While it was largely destroyed by the Romans in 391 CE, a quantity of of the original items are left on the location such as Pompey’s Pillar, which is framed by two giant sphinxes. In the previous, the temple was also one of the most important annexes of the Great Library of Alexandria. The Serapeum is certainly worth a visit as a result of its historic importance and the attractive location.

The assertion of Greek culture serves to implement Egyptian subjection. So the presence in Alexandria of two establishments dedicated to the preservation and research of Greek tradition acts as a strong symbol of Egyptian exclusion and subjection. Texts from different cultures could possibly be kept in the library, however solely as quickly as that they had been translated, that is to say Hellenized.

An oasis of calm on town’s jap edge, Montazah is a lush haven of tall palm timber, trimmed lawns, and blossoming flowers that was once off-limits to all however the royal courtroom and their hangers-on. The hottest Eastern Harbor site has been nicknamed “Cleopatra’s Palace” and indeed was as soon as a palace area – although if the nice woman herself was ever in residence, we’ll never know. For divers, Alexandria offers a singular alternative to dive amid the toppled statues and colomns of the ancient city. In Carmous, close to the Catacombs of Kom el-Shuqqafa, is a hill littered with the stays of ancient walls, architectural fragments, and rubble on which Alexandria’s only absolutely intact historical monument is left standing. Fort Qaitbey was constructed by Mamluke Sultan Qaitbey in an effort to fortify this essential Egyptian port from attack, and rubble from the toppled lighthouse was utilized in its building.

Both sea-front rooms and public areas are filled with old style appeal. For non-religious visitors, the mosque’s beautiful facade of swirling Islamic calligraphy designs and motifs is the main draw-card. Today, the palace is utilized by the Egyptian navy, which suggests its glorious interiors are out of bounds to casual visitors, however the monumental white facade, greatest seen from the harbor waters, is a must-see. The floor floor’s displays of statuary and artifacts from the underwater archaeological explorations of the sunken port metropolis of Heracleion-Thonis in Aboukir Bay, are the museum’s main highlight. These have been once the grandest addresses on the town, and both characteristic in Lawrence Durrell’s classic Alexandria Quartet novels set in the city. The Cecil, in its hey-day, is also well-known for playing host to mystery creator Agatha Christie, the British Secret Service and Winston Churchill during WWII, and Egypt’s beloved singer Umm Khalthoum.
