The Itinerary of Coptic Cairo Day Tour
We will pick you up early in the morning to begin your Coptic Cairo day trip, and one of our outstanding tour guides will be in charge of exhibiting to you some of the most fascinating Coptic sites throughout Old Cairo. The mesmerizing sights that you will visit are:
The Hanging Church
The Suspended Church, also known as the Hanging Church, was built atop the southern gate of the Roman Fortress, hence its nickname “The Hanging Church.” This chapel in Old Cairo is undeniably one of a kind, and what makes it striking is the roof, which is shaped like Noah’s ark. From the seventh until the thirteenth century, it served as the Coptic Patriarch’s home. You will next proceed to see:
Synagogue of Ben Ezra
The 4th-century Christian Church served as the foundation for the Ben Ezra Synagogue, which was founded in the ninth century. It is regarded as the location where the prophet Jeremiah gathered all the Jews together following Nebuchadnezzar’s destruction of the Jerusalem Temple in the sixth century. Since its restoration by Abraham Ben Ezra in the 12th century, the North African Jewish Community’s history from the 11th through the 13th centuries has been the subject of extensive research.
After that, we will take you to a fantastic nearby restaurant where you can have your lunch before continuing your day’s excursion to:
Church of Abu Serga
The Abu Serga Church is thought to have been constructed where the Holy Family, including Mary, Jesus Christ, and Joseph, is said to have rested after completing their journey into Egypt. Numerous patriarchs of the Coptic Church were established in the church, which has a significant historical significance. You will proceed when your day tour comes to a close.
Virgin Mary Church
Another Coptic church may be found near Haret Zuwela, although Virgin Mary Church is the oldest one there and is said to have been constructed in the tenth century, however, some writings indicate that it was actually consecrated in the twelfth century at the time of the New Cairo Bishop. From 1400 AD to 1520 AD, that church served as the residence of the Orthodox Pope of Alexandria. To conclude your day tour of Cairo’s primary Coptic landmarks, we will transfer you in one of our private A.C cars back to your hotel in Cairo or Giza.
