The Monastery of Saint Paul in Egypt

Situated at the Eastern Desert of Egypt, around 300 kilometers away from Zaafrana, overlooking the Red Sea, the Monastery of Saint Paul is one of the remarkable Coptic historical sites in the land of the Nile.

Saint Paul was born as the son of a wealthy tradesman in the Mediterranean coastal city of Alexandria. However, when he converted to Christianity he was the first worshipper to escape in the Eastern Desert. Today, his monastery welcomes hundreds of tourists who visit Egypt.  

The Monastery of St Paul was established around a cave where he resided. Featured with many icons and morals of the Christ and the Virgin Mary, the monastery is a great example of the Coptic designs and outlines.
