Alive in the ‘City of the Dead’: a Virtual Experience

On 18 April 2021 ARCHiNOS launched a multimedia website that lets its visitors explore and experience the Desert of the Mamluks in Cairo, feel what it’s like to visit its monuments and to walk its lanes with the people who live there.

Available in English, French, and Arabic, the site includes a narrated documentary video, and presents various locations by descriptions, photo galleries, and interactive 360-degree panoramic views with pop-up windows that provide further details and explanations.

The production of the website was primarily funded

by the French Institute in Egypt
