The catacombs once filled with treasures of the dead now contain only the sarcophaguses, sea water has infiltrated the site in decades past an annualy in winter. The interior was carved out of solid rock, columns, etc., rather than digging a hole and bringing materials...More
We visited this as a part of the Alexandria day tour with Emo tours. The story behind the discovery of these tombs is very fascinating. On the inside though, it's kind of gloomy and freakish, just to imagine them coming down here to bury/ cremate...More
very interesting to know how the ancient made this burial chambers..the tunnels, the holes undergrounds, the drainage, the craved.. it feel great to witness this visible evidence where three cultures, three arts and three religions ; Egyptian, Greek and Roman; were superimposed upon Egyptian soil.
This is a beautiful tomb plus community burial sites. Unfortunately, no photos allowed. Interesting to see how coffins are lowered into the tombs, and to learn how multiple bodies have been stored in smaller places (sort of like New Orleans cemetery). Beautiful carving and color....More

The site is not that impressive if you are looking it compared to other sites in Egypt. The reason to see it is because it is one of the best sites of its kind, so you see it to have seen it and to be able to put other things in context. If you are short on time then skip it. If you are really short on time skip Alexandria all together. Aswan and Luxor have far more to offer.
