The Montazah Palace was built by Abbas 2, the last khedive of Egypt, around 1900. It lent design ideas from both the Ottoman Empire and Florence in Italy. The result is by all means attractive.
The building is closed to the public, but the surrounding gardens and the beach are open for all paying a small admission. There is an admission fee both for the gardens (EŁ4) and one more for the beach (EŁ10).
