Hear about the sacred site of Cleopatra's Spring in the Sahara Desert of Siwa, Egypt. The spring leads to the Oracle Temple and is the most popular spring for both tourists and locals and offers a few cafes.
About Cleopatra's Spring
"...also called (Eye of the Sun) and its name dates back to the 5th century BC, when the historian (Herodotus) described it by this name. It is one of the natural springs of the Siwa Oasis, and is considered the most famous tourist attraction in Siwa, and it is said that the Egyptian queen (Cleopatra) swam in it during her visit to Siwa." ~ Cairo Top Tours "Beautiful place to stop and either dip into the pool as children were doing the day we visited. Or you can have a lovely relaxing drink in the shade, we tried two different lovely fresh and refreshing drinks made from herbs grown from the garden." - Tripadvisor
"The Siwa area of Egypt is an Oasis in the Sahara Desert. "Some of its most famous springs include Cleopatra's Pool, where it is said that Cleopatra swam, and Fatnas Spring, which is about 6 km from the west of Siwa, on Fatnas Island overlooking a salt lake, and surrounded by olive and palm trees." ~ Egyptian Geographic - Siwa Oasis: The Land of Palm Trees, Olives, Sulphur Springs and the Best in Medical Tourism
