Ras El-Tin Palace
Ras El-Tin Palace
Century-old photo by Zangaki

The palace was built by Mohamed Ali (r. 1805-1848). It was here that the last king of Egypt Farouk signed his abdication and sailed to Europe.

It is wonderful but unfortunately inaccessible to the public. It is used as a naval base and for hosting state guests.
