The Pyramid of Menkaure and the Sphinx of Giza reopen to the public

Despite the socio-political instability that Egypt is experiencing, it is not always bad news that comes to us from that country. One of the best news in terms of history and archeology has arrived very recently and it will surely be an incentive for those who go or plan to visit this millenary country full of treasures.

Recently we have seen how from Egypt they have begun to open monuments that in recent years have been closed due to the weather or because they were in the process of restoration. Two of the most impressive monuments in Egypt, the Pyramid of Menkaure, which was closed due to maintenance problems and the Sphinx of giza, closed for restoration work, have reopened their doors to the delight of everyone.

Despite the restoration process, the Sphinx could be seen and even photographed from a distance, but after spending four years of restoration, it is the best time to visit it.

One of the novelties of the Sphinx is that can be visited through a courtyard that surrounds the monument itself, allowing the visitor to be impressed with the majesty of this monument. All future visitors must purchase a ticket for this purpose, with which there will already be a source of income for the State and also for a fund for the restoration of the monument itself.

Coinciding with the reopening of the Sphinx to the public, the temple of Amenhotep II was opened to the public for the first time, which is at its feet and that will reveal many of the secrets of Ancient Egypt to anyone who dares to visit this place.

On the other hand, Pyramid of Menkaure It has a new lighting system that will allow you to admire details that the old system could not. They have also renewed the ventilation system and access, so that everyone can enjoy a visit to this impressive monument at all times.

These reopens, and others to come, will contribute significantly to tourism in this country, one of its economic engines, where violence has resulted in a significant drop in income, which led to a lack of investment to maintain or restore many of its archaeological treasures, but this initiative may be a push for tourism to return to Flow in this country and Egyptology lovers can see their dream come true of visiting some of the most famous monuments in the world.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
