Monks show you around. They have excellent English, are extremely friendly and very knowledgable. A real treat. Worth the drive which is interesting in its own rite...drop in on the Biqash camel market on the way!

The monuments are ancient and awesome, the air is inspiring & serene. It is a place where you feel curious yet also peaceful. Its a spiritual trip but can be more fun in groups and better yet not in the summer because it can be very hot. All in all its like visiting another era with all its mystery.

Nothing but a church and small unclean town.
It may be special for Egyptian christian for religious reasons

you can spend one day there visiting the monasteries and see the ancient coptic heritage with lots of information about coptic history and monastic life, also see modern coptic monasticism with its multiple activities

This is the only thing that Egypt has, while no other country else has.
It is very old.. and very unique.. and if you are a christian, you would feel like you have been blessed.
poor streets untill you reach the monasteries, but once you are there, you will be astonished
