Red Sea Coast

Suez has been a commercial port since the 7th century.

The spice trade and pilgramages to Mecca made it prosperous throughout the Middle Ages. It became a navel base in the 15th century and, in 1869, the opening of the Suez Canal ensured its development as a modern city. Today, Suez is one of Egypt's largest ports.
