About Tanta

Centred around a large picturesque mosque, Tanta is a small Egyptian town remarked for its annual festivals. This cotton capital epitomises a slower-paced lifestyle and is known for its sweets shops and chickpeas.

Things to do

The Mosque of al-Sayyed Ahmed al-Badawi is the area’s highlight attraction, where you can spend time admiring al-Badawi’s shrine illuminated with emerald lights. In October, this mosque honours the 13th-century Moroccan Sufi who founded the Badawiya Sufi order and attracts up to three million people from around the world.

Head to the Tanta Museum for a dose of history and culture. Spend time wandering through collections of unique artefacts found at the ancient sites of Sais, Naucratis and Buto, including pottery and statues.

If you choose to visit in October, Tanta comes alive at the end of the cotton harvest. You can observe the visitors that gather for the Moulid of Sayid Ahmed el-Badawi, a vibrant eight-day celebration.

For a true taste of authentic Mediterranean cuisine, stop off at the Spectra Restaurant and Cafe. Try the beef main course or select a vegetarian option and enjoy casual dining in a decorated setting. Afterwards, wander the streets while snacking on sugar-coated nuts, considered a local delicacy.

Getting around

Tanta is about a 1.5-hour drive from Cairo. There are frequent train connections from Alexandria, Cairo and Port Said. Although the easiest way of getting around the city is by minibus or taxi, you can explore most of the downtown area on foot.
