A beautiful church with amazing artifacts and history. You are able to visit the crypt where Joseph, Mary and Jesus sheltered, see the well where they drew water. Awesome and made better with my gifted guide Marwa, marwa_ghazal@hotmail.com.

We visited the church during mass. It was interesting. When we entered, the priest spoke to the congregation. There was too much incense of a very good smell. All women wore a veil. We stayed there for a few minutes, even without understanding the language. As soon as we were leaving, a chorus singing began. It's worth visiting. And I believe that we were lucky to visit it at this time specifically. The church itself is small and there is not much to be seen.

An ancient Coptic church built on the bastion and the Water Gate of a Roman fort. The building in its current form has been known approximately since the 7th century, the history dates back to the 4th century. It was rebuilt several times, recently restoration was carried out. Inside there is a carved wood and ivory iconostasis, a marble pulpit, old icons. Nice, quiet, peaceful. Древняя коптская церковь, построенная на бастионе и Водных воротах римского форта. Здание в нынешнем виде известно ориентировочно с 7 века, история восходит к 4 веку. Неоднократно перестраивалась, недавно была проведена реставрация. Внутри находится резной иконостас из дерева и слоновой кости, мраморная кафедра, старые иконы. Красиво, тихо, умиротворенно.

A very beautiful must-see church in the old coptic part of old Cairo. The church is one of the oldest churches in Egypt and the world.
