Tombs of the Kings

Recommended
This necropolis was entirely hewn out of rock in the 4C BC. The burial places are so impressive that popular tradition has attributed them to kings. In reality, they are the tombs of wealthy notables who wanted to take the riches that surrounded them during their lifetime with them into the afterlife. These tombs take the form of opulent houses, with their central atriums onto which the rooms open out.
