Shubra’s Stunning Mohamed Ali Palace to Be Reopened in 2020

Secretary-General of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, Mustafa Waziri, has announced that the EGP 194 million restoration of Mohamed Ali Palace in Shubra Al Khaima is set to be complete in June 2020, according to Egypt Today.

Standing as one of the most unique structured in Egypt, the palace combines European and Islamic elements across its 59 acre space. While the architecture planning bares the hallmarks of the Islamic style, the decorations are inspired by the 19th century Baroque aesthetic of France and Italy. The palace, which was built in 1808, is also home to a unique collection of paintings showing Mohamed Ali and various family members.

According to Waziri, EGP 155 million has been spent on the restoration of El-Fasakia kiosk building, while the overall restoration is set to extend to the palace's surrounding area.
