Great Greek Poet ! Apr 04, 2010
The museum is dedicated to the great Greek poet Constantine Cavafy (Konstantinos Kavafis) (1863-1933) who lived in this house most of his life.

The house displays Cavafy's productions, translations of his poets and articles written about his poetry as well as biographical records and photographs. It was restored and opened in 1992.

Constantine P. Cavafy (Kavafis), born in Alexandria, Egypt, was the ninth and last child of Constantinopolitan parents. His father, Peter Cavafy, left Constantinople as a young man (in 1836) to join his elder brother George in England where the two worked with Greek business firms in Manchester, London, and Liverpool.

Follow a web page with his poems in English and Greek language .

Interesting. For some reason Alexandria interests me more than Cairo.
