St. Antonius and St. Paulus are among the oldest monasteries in the world!

What to expect?

The oldest Christianity monastery in Egypt, the holiest place for Egyptian orthodox Copts. Cultural and historical heritage. Nowadays it houses more than 100 monks. Here you will find an old Coptic church where the holy man (St Anthony) is buried and well-preserved medieval paintings. His library contains valuable ancient manuscripts. Opposite standing St. Paul's Monastery was built over the cave of Saint Paul, a Christian hermit who lived in the 4th Century AD. He preferred an ascetic life in the desert to the comfort of a city and devoted his life to worship God. According to legend, God himself sent bread from ravens to his faithful servant to save him from starvation, and his grave is said to have been dug by lions after Paul's death at the age of 105. This is definitely a place to see. Old Egyptian heritage in the Islamic Republic of today.
