Coptic Cairo, Cave Churches
Steven_M
, Jun 2022
Coptic Cairo is well worth the experience, with the hanging church being particularly impressive. However, the highlight has to be the cave churches. They are truly large and very awe inspiring, and made all the more impressive by the fact that they are constructed by people from the garbage city slum that you drive through in order to get there. Seeing how some of the poorest people in Egypt live is quite an eye opening experience for westerners.
