Visit Antoniadis Palace and Gardens Alexandria Egypt

The Antoniadis Palace is a very famous and important site in Alexandria, and yet is not frequented by many tourists. The PalaceĀ is listed as historical monument number 1,250 in the governorate conservation registry. It lies near the Mahmoudia Canal at the southern entrance of Alexandria, and is surrounded by some 48 hectares of greenery in several sections. They include the Antoniadis Garden, the Flower Garden, the Zoological and Botanical Gardens and the Nouzaba (Nuzha) Garden, which was a residential suburb inhabited by the likes of Callimachous (310-240 BC), the head librarian of the ancient Library of Alexandria at that time. In 640 AD, the Roman general Pompilius thwarted the King of Syria’s attempt to capture Alexandria, while in the same year the cavalry of the Arab conqueror Amr Ibn el-As pitched camp before entering the city.
