Siwa Oasis is located in the Libyan Desert, 560 km (348 miles) from Cairo and is one of Egypt's isolated settlements. Populated by ethnic Berbers who speak a distinct language known as Siwi, is consists almost solely of mud-brick buildings. The ancient fortress of Siwa, built of natural rock salt, mud-brick and palm logs, remains a prominent feature towering five storeys above the modern town. Other local historic sites of interest include: the remains of the oracle temple; the Gebel al Mawta (the Mountain of the Dead) Roman-era necropolis featuring dozens of rock-cut tombs; and "Cleopatra's Bath" a natural sulphur spring.
