Google’s Street View has long since expanded its reach beyond your local avenues and thoroufares into seemingly every nook and cranny around the world. And today, the internet giant has announced a slew of new Street View imagery on Google Maps, covering the monuments and history of Ancient Egypt.

Naturally, this includes the Pyramids of Giza and the Giza Necropolis, as well as the human-lion hybrid – the Great Sphinx. Elsewhere, you’ll find the Abu Mena,Cairo Citadel and the Citadel of Qaitbay.
