El-Dikheila in Egypt


El Dikheila lies on the coastal road between Alexandria and Mersa Matruh, just west of Alexandria. There is a military camp and near this, the ruins of an ancient monastery called Enaton. This monastery was built in the fifth century by monks who also left some evidence of their existence in the area of Lake Mariut and Wadi Natrun.
