Baron Empain's palace, Heliopolis
A unique structure ornamenting the neighbourhood's urban landscape.
It is one of the most architecturally exquisite buildings in Egypt, and one of its historical and touristic landmarks. The building's original colour and shine was restored following a complete restoration project. The palace includes an exhibition of a diverse assortment of documentary and archival photographs, plans, and maps of the structure, in addition to information panels narrating the history of Heliopolis across the ages. The panels, which will be complemented by videos and photographs displaying daily urban life in this unique time period, will also recount the history of several other heritage sites in the area.
