El Farafra is an oasis in the New Valley governorate in the Western Desert of Egypt. It locates between El Dakhla and El Baharya Oases. Distinctively, the oasis is distinguished with a simple architecture of its mud-brick houses, of which the oldest part lies on a hillside, next to peaceful palm groves. Not so far, there are hot sulfuric springs at Bir Setta and EL-Mufid Lake where visitors can satisfy their wishes for swimming. At the site, were unearthed some Roman ruins of Qasr AL-Farafra and Qasr Abu Minqar.
