Siwa Oasis  one of the most mysterious of all Egypt’s oases and the most fascinating oasis in the western desert
Its history has not only been shaped through the ancient civilizations and the ages that witnessed.
but also by the contrast of the surrounding desert and the great sand sea so it has no equal.
For a cultural trip in Shali the oasis’ main town check out the strange ruins of the Shali Fortress which dominate the town center and walk along sandy paths to find the Temple of the Oracle, once visited by Alexander the Great himself
to consult the Oracle of Siwa. Finish your day by taking a dip at Cleopatra’s Pool, where the legendary queen herself is believed to have once swum. Don’t forget to buy some Siwan Crafts on your way, and spare an hour or two for a visit to the charming Siwa House Museum.

paintings. Its name is Gebel al-Mawta, means ‘Mountain of the Dead’ and most of the tombs here
date back to the 26th dynasty and Ptolemaic and Roman times.
