A majestic one – from the yesteryears…

IMG_0085e

Montaza Palace was built in 1892, on a low plateau east of central Alexandria overlooking a beach on the Mediterranean Sea. It is in a mixture of Ottoman and Florentine styles, with two towers. One of these towers rises distinctively high above with elaborated Italian Renaissance design details. The palace has long open arcades facing the sea along each floor.

Have a nice day!
