The medieval quarter of Cairo is another important aspect of the
city’s history. It includes a number of Coptic Christian monuments.
St. SerguisChurchwhere the Holy Family was staying in a crypt,
During their flight to Egypt
The Hanging Churchwas built on one of the walls of the Fortress
where an inscription of Amr Ibn El Ass (general of the Arab
armies having Islamized Egypt) preaches the tolerance between
Moslems and Christians.
The Coptic Museum where we can see fine examples of Coptic craftsmanship.
One can also see Synagogue Ben Ezra, with the architecture marked by Coptic and Islamic influences where precious Jewish archives were found.
