ruins of Shali

ADD TO MY TRIP

In the center of siwa, you'll find a nice skyline of the ruins of Shali. It dates back to the 13th century.
The building material was kershef, a mixture of salt and clay.
Shali is supposed to have risen 60 metres above the ground level of the oasis, helped by the two mountains here. It must have been a fabulous sight. It still is, but none of 5 story houses still stand.
