Catacombs of Kom El Shoqafa
It is considered one of the seven wonders of the world in the Middle Ages. It is the largest Roman cemetery, and the cemetery consists of a series of tombs, statues, and archaeological remains of Pharaonic funerals.
The importance of the cemetery is due to its vastness, abundance of decorations, and the complexity of its planning. It is also one of the clearest examples of the mixing of Pharaonic art with Roman art in Alexandria, and one of the best examples of funerary architecture in Alexandria.

Pompey’s Pillar was built in honor of Emperor Decaldianus. The total height of the column, including the base, is about 2,685 metres. On the west side are two bases, which can be reached via an underground staircase. There are also two pink granite statues that look like sphinxes.
