To explore Coptic Cairo, our tour guide will pick you up from your hotel. Old Cairo, which includes the Babylon Fortress, the Hanging Church, the Greek Church of St. George, as well as numerous other Coptic churches and historical sites, includes Coptic Cairo. According to Christian legend, the Holy Family is said to have travelled through this region and stayed at the Saints Sergius and Bacchus Church location (Abu Serga). Although the majority of the churches' existing structures were constructed after the Muslim invasion of Egypt in the 7th century, Coptic Cairo was a stronghold for Christianity in Egypt up to the Islamic era.
next we'll move on to see Ben Ezra Synagogue.
The Ben Ezra Synagogue, also known as the Synagogue of the Levantines or the El-Geniza Synagogue, is located in Old Cairo, Egypt. Folklore in the area claims that it is situated where infant Moses was discovered.
This was the synagogue whose abandoned Hebrew, Aramaic, and Judeo-Arabic secular and religious texts were discovered in its geniza, or store chamber, in the 19th century. Solomon Schechter initiated the transfer of the Cairo Geniza collection to the University of Cambridge in Cambridge, England. It is presently spread out among various academic institutions.
after that we will transfer you to your cairo hotel.
