Visitng this church was quite memorable because of our ability to see where the Holy Family was hidden from the Romans. This was a deeply religious feeling.

Visited this 4th century church as part of a tour of Coptic Cairo which also included a visit to a nearby synagogue. The ‘sunken’ or ‘Cavern, church is full of interesting surprises such as a blood stained pillar (the pillar supposedly bled just prior to Egypt’s defeat by the Israelis in 1967) as well as an ancient grape/wine press. The fact that the Holy Family supposedly resided on this spot in a cave (this subterranean area was blessed by Jesus) only adds to its importance and place of pilgrimage.
