Memphis Historical Site boasts ancient sculptures and funerary monuments. Compared to the Giza pyramids, this is a small and isolated site best seen with a guide who can provide historical context and information on numerous artifacts. Highlights include a colossal statue of a pharaoh, an alabaster Sphinx--less known than its famous counterpart in Giza--and a step pyramid, a smaller predecessor of Giza's pyramids.
