Abydos is one of the oldest cities of high Egypt (southern of the country), located at ten kilometres westward of the Nile.
It is known for its archaeological richnesses, which are among most important of Egypt.

The holy city of Abydos was the place of many ancient temples, among its a royal necropolis where some of the first Pharaohs were buried.
Abydos became famous with the large temple of Seti I, under which a tunnel contains the tables of Abydos: a chronological list of the cartridges of the majority of the Pharaoh, since the old dynasties of Narmer/Menes, to the Pharaohs of the last dynasty.
