We visited this site on our 2nd day in Luxor and would definitely recommend others visiting as well. The site is the place where the workers who worked in the Valley of the Kings lived. When they didn't work on the king's tomb they worked...More
THIS ancient Egyptian village was where artisans lived who were working on tombs in the Valley of the Kings.
We arrived to see it and were amazed at how clearly the structure of the village can be seen despite the passage of thousands of years....More
We made a special effort to visit the Deir El-Medina - Artisan’s Valley, home of the Occupational village of artisans & workers for the Valleys of the Kings & Queens. The remaining walls of the homes in the ancient village interconnect & form a maze....More

For all the Glory of the Valley of the Kings and Queens, the artisan/ Nobles tombs are the most beautiful, and in good condition. The tomb of Sennofer is out of this world. Shaped ceilngs showing bunches of painted grapes hanging down, "for the deceased"...More
