Mohamed Ali’s house – statue

It was built in 1720 and it is preserved in very good condition. The grounds on which the house is built, is property of the Egyptian Government. Apart from the house there is also a large garden. Until a few months ago it was a museum. It currently operates as a bar-restaurant.

Next to Mohamed Ali’s house there is a bronze equestrian statue of him, a work by the Hellene sculptor Dimitriadis. A gift from the Hellenes of Alexandria to the people of Kavala. The unveiling took place on December 6th, 1940.
