Rocky outcrop by the Mediterranean

Rocky outcrop by the Mediterranean

Valley of the Kings view map

Called Paleokastra because they looked
like castles. These rocks mark the location
of royal tombs. This place was a "safe"
distance from the city walls for a necropolis.
The Etruscans had a similar design for their
burial sites.
