See a number of traditional churches belonging to the largest Christian community in the Middle East at Coptic Cairo, a historic part of town with many storied religious sites. The area has been of vital significance to the Copts, the largest Christian denomination in the region, who have built Orthodox churches here since the 4th century CE. Believed to have been visited by Jesus, Mary, and Joseph as they fled to Egypt, the neighborhood today draws scores of pilgrims. Take a tour of the main churches and head to the local museum to gain a better understanding of the history of the group, and how they came to thrive in the area.
