Deir El-Medina in Luxor



The craftsmen and workers who built the magnificent temples and decorated the splendid tombs that honored the ancient pharaohs lived and buried in Deir el-Medina, also known as the Workers' Village, located south of the Valley of the Kings. Discover more about this historical place here!


Excavations on this site have brought about 70 houses to the light, surrounded by a boundary wall. The site is heavily ruined by time, the structure of the houses is still well preserved. Each consisted of an entrance hall and four rooms, a staircase leads down and another that went up to the terraced roof.

The builders of the temples were buried in perfectly decorated tombs and topped with a small pyramid or a pyramidion in Deir El-Madina, south of the Valley of the Kings. The small size of these tombs allows only small group visits. The tombs take the shape of a courtyard surrounded by a chapel, under which the funeral chamber was located.

To the west, going up the hillside, you will come across some simpler tombs that are carved out of the rock. 3 of them are open to the public and deserve to be visited for their magnificent wall decorations
