Massawa Island

TIME : 2016/2/16 18:39:08

Possibly the most interesting of the three main neighbourhoods in the city of Massawa, Massawa Island is the site of the port and the old town. It's an astounding blend of Egyptian, Turkish and Italo-Moorish architecture. The buildings are made of coral rock with mashrabeya (wooden screened windows).
