A signature sight of Coptic Cairo, the Church of St. Barbara stands close to the Saints Sergius and Bacchus Church. Its history may date back to the fourth century, although it’s been extensively reworked over time. Coptic Christians believe the chapel houses the relics of St. Barbara, martyred by her father in the city of Heliopolis.

Half-day Tour in Churches of Cairo
"We originally booked to start our tour at 0800am; received a message about starting at 0900am instead which was not a big deal for us (all communication via email). Our guide was early and was waiting for us at our hotel; he even offered us extra time if we needed to get coffee or breakfast before departing. Our guide spoke English very well and showed passion when telling us about the creation of the Cave Church. We stopped at St Sergius and St Bacchus Church where it is thought that Jesus stayed while in Egypt. Last stop on our tour was unfortunately closed and we were not able to see. Tour lasted about 4 hours. Our guide aloud us some time to shop while we were out at our request; never felt rushed. Traveled by van; outstanding driver. Overall, a very enjoyable experience and one that Christians would highly appreciate!"..."
