Our next stop is in Coptic Cairo, We will visit the Hanging Church, also known as El Muallaqa that was dedicated to the Virgin Mary and was believed to have been built at the end of the 3rd century. Built on the outer wall you will see the Greek Church of St. George.
Following is a visit to the Church of St. Sergius, a perfect example of Coptic churches and monasteries. It was founded at the end of the 4th century and it stands on a crypt that is said to have sheltered the holy family during their flight from Egypt.
