The Royal necropolis Meroe is located about 3 kilometres away from the Nile and 230 kilometres north of Khartoum, on some hills covered with yellow sand dunes. More than 40 pyramids stand out with their sharp shapes against the clear sky. Most of them have been perfectly preserved. Since June 2011 the archaeological site of these Meroitic civilizations have been listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
