About Pyramids of Giza

Known as Cheops, Chephren and Mycerinus, the legendary Pyramids of Giza are the only remnants of the ancient Seven Wonders of the World and are, today, among the most famous and oldest attractions in the world. A highly skilled group of mathematicians, masons, surveyors and stonecutters were behind the design and construction of the pyramids, which were built to protect the mummies of the pharaohs and the treasures they took with them to the afterlife. It is estimated that around 2.5 million limestone blocks, quarried locally and weighing in excess of six million tonnes, were used in the construction of Cheops – the largest of the pyramids.

Nearby these man-made wonders is the iconic Sphinx, a statue with the face of a man and body of a lion carved out of a limestone bedrock standing 20 metres tall. It is the oldest known monumental sculpture and is believed to represent the face of Pharaoh Khafra. Over the years the Sphinx has eroded in varying degrees due to the fact that the limestone it is carved from consists of widely differing quality of stone, some more susceptible to wind erosion than others.

The pyramids and the Sphinx are located in Giza, a suburb of Cairo and easily visited from the city centre. Ride a camel across the dusty plateau, journey deep inside the pyramids to the pharaoh's burial chamber within and have your photo taken with the Sphinx for your ultimate Egyptian experience. Due to the mornings being somewhat hazy, the best time to visit the site is later in the afternoon when the crowds have started to dissipate and air is clearer, making the photo opportunities all that much better.
