Itinerary of Tour to Wadi El Natroun from Cairo

Wadi El Natroun is one of the most wonderful Christian locations in the world where thousands of Coptics had resorted in the 4th century to escape from oppression and injustice during the reign of the Roman Emperor. This majestic site is known for the place where Christian monasticism was truly born. Wadi El Natroun had great importance for the ancient pharaohs since it was the main source of carbonated sodium which had been used in mummification. The area involved tens of monasteries but only four remain.
Monastery of Baramus or "Deir Al Baramus" as it's named in Arabic is one of the Wadi El Natroun monasteries which had been established in 340 AD. It was built by St Macarius at the same place where he had stayed and dedicated himself to serving the Christian faith.
It's located in Wadi El Natroun and it is dedicated to Anba Bishoy who claimed that he saw Jesus Christ. The monastery contains five Coptic churches and the area had very large towers that were used to protect the monasteries against the Berber attacks.
It's one of the oldest of the Wadi El Natroun monasteries which was constructed in the 4th century by St Makarius the Great. It was largely established as a memorial site for St Makarius who was the father of the monks in Wadi El Natroun since he was the first one to stay in the valley.
It had been founded in the 6th century by St Bishoy and it's devoted to the Virgin Mary. It's believed that some of the Syrian monks inhabited the monastery for some time that's why it takes the name "Suryan" which refers to the Syrians.
Finally, you will enjoy an appetizing lunch.
We will drive you back to your hotel in Cairo.
