Is it possible to visit the Pyramids inside?

Yes, you can visit the Pyramids inside. And, in fact, it is a must for those who want to feel intensely all the emotion of these monuments, standing for more than four millennia. In this post we do not limit ourselves to answer this question, but we also tell you which pyramids can be visited in Giza, what you will find inside and how to get tickets for it.

Which Pyramid to visit and what you will find in them

In the great necropolis of Giza, you can visit the three visit the three Pyramids inside. Entering one, two or all three will depend on your available time and the level of depth you want to achieve in your knowledge of these spectacular monuments.

The most visited is probably the Pyramid of Cheops or Jufu: it is the largest and therefore also known as the Great Pyramid. It was built by this pharaoh of the IV dynasty around 2570 BC. The second in size is that of his son Chephren or Jaffa, although by an optical effect seems the highest. It tends to concentrate fewer visitors, in addition to offering a greater amplitude in the interior route. And finally, the Pyramid of Mycerinus (also from Dynasty IV) is the smallest and, perhaps for this reason, the least visited, so it will offer a more relaxed experience.

You should know that in none of the three you will find hieroglyphic decoration or religious paintings (that is something you will see, for example, in the royal tombs of the Valley of the Kings in Luxor). In addition, they can be somewhat oppressive and claustrophobic, as the passages are narrow and unventilated, which produces an intense sensation of heat and humidity.

However, the interest lies in understanding how that ancient civilization was able to carry out such masterpieces of engineering and architecture with the rudimentary means they had at their disposal. Therefore, it will be overwhelming to stop before marks in the stone that denote the construction techniques, the perfection of the cuts or the labyrinthine layout of the interior, even reaching the most secret rooms, such as the King’s Chamber in the Great Pyramid of Cheops or the burial chamber of Chephren in his… although without their respective mummies in them.
