“Desert Monastery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012

This is a coptic Christian monastery in the middle of the desert which looks like a prison as it has high walls all round and security on the gate. Inside it was a great place filled with families and young people just relaxing and looking around. Worth a visit, and you should meet the delightful priests there.

When I'm there it gives me a peacful feeing inside.
The Church is beautiful.
The Pope Kirolos visit is very spiritual.
