Abdeen Palace was built in 1863 on an area of 25-feddan by Egyptian, Italian, French and Turkish architects. It was in 1872 that this luxurious palace became the seat of the government.

In the late eighties, President Mubarak ordered that the palace, one of the most beautiful in the world, be completely restored, to form part of Egypt's heritage. Restoration work took longer than expected as the old palace was badly damaged during the strong 1992 earthquake that hit Egypt.
Abdeen Palace is one of the most famous palaces erected during the reign of Mohamed Ali Pasha's Dynasty, and was the seat of the government between 1872 and 1952. During this eventful period, Abdeen Palace witnessed unforgettable events that undoubtedly affected Egypt's modern and contemporary history.
