"Alexandria, The Catacombs of Kom El Shouqafa" Egypt Things to Do Tip by Joenes

Egypt Things to Do: 1,687 reviews and 2,532 photos

  The Catacombs of Kom El Shouqafa
by Joenes

Amazing architecture that is a mix of Roman and Greek styles while funerary motifs are pure ancient Egyptian which is very rare to say the least.
It has amazing winding stairs!
Unfortunately I had to leave my camera at the gate so I only have a picture from outside..:-(

Directions: Alexandria
