El Minya is one of the most fascinating cities in Egypt. It currently houses nearly six million Egyptians and it is Egypt's geographical and historical heart in many ways, located along the Nile, 230 km away from Cairo.
It was the capital of Egypt until nearly 1470 B.C. Akhenaten and his beautiful wife Nefertiti built the new capital at Tel Amarna. The ruins of the temple they built for Atun are still there. In addition to this, you can visit the tombs of the nobles in Tuna El Gebal and Beni Hassan. The city has its religious importance because the holy family stopped there during their journey to Egypt.
