Baron's Palace

Baron Empain Palace is one of the ancient palaces of Egypt with a special architectural style. It was constructed by the Belgian millionaire Baron Edward Empain who came to Egypt from India at the end of the nineteenth century shortly after the opening of the Suez Canal. European Hindu architecture of French architect Alexander Marcel was on display during an engineering exhibition in Paris, construction of the palace began in 1906 AD and opened in 1911 AD. Since the 1950s, with the transfer of ownership of the palace, the palace began to be neglected until the Egyptian government bought it in 2005 for its archaeological and architectural value, and the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities began restoration work in 2017, which ended with its opening in 2020. The palace is currently located in the heart of the Heliopolis area in Cairo.
