Aswan, the city of magic, is located in a charming spot on the Nile. Aswan’s beauty and scenic nature, made both Egyptians and foreigners, keen to visit it from the farthest countries of the world, to enjoy eco-tourism and culture. In Aswan, eco-tourism stands out, where the colorful Nubian houses appear on the banks of the Nile, and there is a chance to find peace in the heart of nature.
Aswan was known in Pharaonic as “Suno” meaning market since it was a center of trade and confluence of caravans, then it was known in the Coptic language as Swan, which the Arabs distorted when they entered Egypt to become Aswan. Historically it was known as the southern gateway to Egypt.
Aswan witnessed the flourishing of the Nubian civilization and the Pharaonic civilization, and many temples were built in it, many of which were transformed into churches in the Christian era, which helped the spread of Christianity in the south towards Nubia in Egypt and Sudan.
Since the emergence of Islam, many inscriptions in Kufic script dating back to the first century AH were found. Aswan flourished in the Islamic era in the tenth century AD, and it had three schools, the oldest of which was the Aswan School, The Seifia School, and the Negmia School in Aswan.
