Siwa Things to Do: 40 reviews and 79 photos

Built in 1203, the mudbrick village of Shali was abandoned in 1926 after heavy rains. Since many of the houses in Siwa don't have roofs...well it practically never rains, the folks were ill prepared for the consequences. If your're not getting enough exercise, you can walk the old streets. The city is illuminated at night and it is eerily beautiful
