Egypt: Ottoman Fortress as Quseir in Egypt

Ottoman Fortress

Thee is an Ottoman fortress located in Quseir that dates from the 16 century. It was latter occupied and modified by the French, and after a huge battle in the 19th century, was then occupied by the British who added a fortified gate. The fortress has been largely restored, and will soon be the home of a museum containing displays on local history, Red Sea mining, monasteries and trade, as well as a visitor's center.
