The Valley of the Nobles (Necropolis of Sheikh Abd el-Qurna) held the burial places of important nobles. There are some fantastic tombs with exquisite paintings in that area, rivaling the ones in the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens.

Osirisnet.net has detailed descriptions of many of the tombs around Thebes (Luxor) in the Valley of the Nobles.

The Valley of the Nobles is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Ancient Thebes with its Necropolis.
