FEKRA is located next to Aswan in the El Shallal* region. It is situated on one of the Nile coves and is unique in its diverse vegetation and variety of bird species. El Shallal borders the red granite rock desert and lies beneath Lake Nasser, the gateway to the Sudan.
The FEKRA Cultural Center is uniquely located in the midst of this breathtaking nature and is surrounded by the Nile waters and opposite the Philae Island upon which rises the famous Isis Temple. This historically rich place, in the middle of extraordinary cultural sites and antiquities, has for centuries been a crossroads for different people who have shaped its character.
