Traditionally an exclusive resort where Cairo and Alexandria elite vacations. Known as the Egyptian St-Tropez, Agami today also caters to the middle and working class. The resort village was founded in the 1950's, but their are few structures remaining from this period. And while most of the housing in the area is simple, there are exceptions, including the Villa Lashin, built in 1962 by architect Ali Azzam and the Beit el-Halawa built by Abd el-Wahid el-Wakil. Near here, you will also find the resort villages of Hannoville and Sidi Kheir, which are also popular summer retreats. Historically, there is a small French fort built during French occupation of Egypt.
