In the morning, we will pick you up to start your Coptic Cairo day tour by joining one of our exceptional tour guides who will be responsible for showing you some of the most fascinating Coptic sites all around Old Cairo and the hypnotic sites that you are going to visit are:
The Hanging church is referred to as the Suspended Church and it got its name "The Hanging Church" since it was established on the southern gate of the Roman Fortress. This is without a doubt a very unique church in Old Cairo and what is impressive about it is the roof which is in the shape of the ark of Noah. It has been the residence of the Coptic Patriarch from the 7th up to the 13 centuries.
Ben Ezra synagogue dates back to the 9th century and it occupied the 4th century Christian Church’s shell. It is considered the site where the prophet Jeremiah collected all of the Jews together after the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple was destroyed in the 6th century by Nebuchadnezzar. Abraham Ben Ezra was restored in the 12th century and since then, it has become the place to know all about the secrets and mysteries of the life of the North African Jewish Community starting from the 11th century up to the thirteenth.
Then, we will transfer you to a wonderful local restaurant to enjoy your lunch meal and then you will continue the rest of your day tour to:
Abu Serga Church is believed to be built in the place which is believed to be the spot where the Holy family including Mary, Jesus Christ, and Joseph rested after finishing their journey into Egypt. That church has great historical importance and so many patriarchs of the Coptic Church were erected there.
Virgin Mary church is another Coptic church that is located in Haret Zuweila and it is actually the oldest one there. It is believed to be built during the 10th century although some writing there shows that it dat`es to the 12th century at the consecration of the New Cairo Bishop. That church has been the seat of the Orthodox Pope of Alexandria from 1400 AD up to 1520 AD.
Finally, we will transfer you in one of our private A.C vehicles back to your hotel in Cairo/Giza to end your day tour to Cairo’s main Coptic sites.
