About Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa

Translating as the “Mound of Shards”, the Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa is an archaeological site in Alexandria that dates back to the 2nd century AD. It comprises several tombs, statues and archaeological artefacts with Hellenistic and Imperial Roman influences and is considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages.

Follow the spiral staircase that leads down a shaft where the bodies of the dead were once lowered, with a rotunda at the base connecting to a labyrinth of chambers. Step into the Triclinium Hall where grieving relatives would hold their final feast before exploring the principal tomb of the Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa.

Admire the Alexandrian-style decorations that blend ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman funerary iconography, with the Egyptian god of the dead, Anubis, depicted on the inner chamber doorway. Also of note is the Hall of Caracalla, which features a painting depicting the kidnapping of Persephone by Hades and the mummification of Osiris.

Getting there

The Catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa are located in Alexandria, a 10-minute taxi ride from the Alexandria railway station. Borg El Arab International Airport is about an hour’s drive from the site and has flights to destinations across the Middle East.
