  • Also known as Pharos by the Greeks, it was a wonderful engineering work built around 250 BC with the aim of helping the sailors enter the port of Alexandria in ancient Egypto. It was built entirely in stone with more than 100 meters of height, which made it one of the highest structures in the Mediterranean. Currently there is only the base, converted into a military site that is known as Fort Qaitbey, the wonderful structure was toppled by the earthquakes of the 1375 BC, the same one that was lately considered one of the Seven Wonders of the World Old.

  • The area is nice and worth a visit although I was not lucky except for an evening visit but it was beautiful. If you want tourism, get yourself back to health in the morning so that you can run away and go to rest once or ta a day and i will do a schedule that will be of great benefit to all those who come to Alexandria.
