Medinet Fayyum

Medinet Fayyum Review

The center city of the oasis is built around waterwheels. They are an icon of the Fayyum, and you can hear them—the sound resembles the moaning of humpback whales—amid the honking of horns and the rush of traffic. There are four waterwheels in Medinet Fayyum, and many others are scattered throughout the oasis.
