The Suez Canal was drilled between 1859 and 1869 under the direction of Ferdinand de Lesseps.

It was inaugurated on November 17, 1869 in the presence of prominent figures from the Arab and European worlds, including Empress Eugenie and Emir Abdelkader.

But the canal has a much more distant origin, some 1800 years before our era. The idea arose very early on to allow boats to pass from the Nile to the Red Sea and thus, in effect, link the latter to the Mediterranean. Many sovereigns attached their name to the project - Sesostris III, the first to order its digging, then Neko II, the great Darius, Ptolemy II Philadelphus, Trajan ...

On August 6, 2015, at the end of a year of titanic work, Egypt inaugurated a new Suez Canal: 37 km doubling the historic canal, itself also widened by 35 km.
