Tourist Attraction near Giza
Pyramids of Giza and The Great Sphinx
The Pyramids of Giza are rightly one of the most famous sights in Egypt. They are among the oldest surviving structures in the world, and they continue to be a major tourist attraction. In 1979, UNESCO designated the Pyramids of Giza as a World Heritage Site. They were built about 4,500 years ago and are to date still the tallest structure in Egypt. The Great Sphinx is located right next to the pyramids of Giza and is equally impressive. It is a large statue of a lion with a human head, and one of the most famous landmarks in Egypt. There is some debate over this, but most experts agree that the face of the Sphinx bears a strong resemblance to pharaoh Khafre's portraits.
