Fodor's Review

You need to have a fairly serious death fetish to make the effort to see these 3rd-century-BC Ptolemaic tombs. Although built on a smaller scale than the Catacombs at Kom al-Shoqafa, this necropolis has more extant decoration, including paintings on the limestone walls that simulate marble and include various images from the pantheon of pharaonic gods. The tombs are on the spit of land (which at one time was an island) separating the Western and Eastern harbors, roughly a third of the way between the Palace of Ras al-Tin on the western point and Fort Qayt Bay on the eastern point.
