This is the village of the people who did the artwork in the tombs. We visited their tombs as well. This involved going down steep steps with low access. It was worth it, as the artwork was different than those of the pharaohs.

These tombs were built by the artisans who designed and decorated the tombs of the Pharaohs - but with these tombs, there are fewer tourists, and you have plenty of time to enjoy them

Truely an amazing experience. The colours and artwork in the tombs outshine the Valley of the Kings. Not many people visit here - which is good for the preservation of the tombs - but means the "gate keepers" are very push for tips !
