Old Cairo (Coptic Cairo), Cairo Overview

This little and enclosed region also called Coptic Cairo, is the most ancient part of Cairo. It is the heart of the Coptic Christian group and remains a truly fascinating spot to visit. The Coptic Museum contains an abundance of valuable information on Egypt's initial Christian period and is home to one of Egypt's finest accumulations of Coptic art collections.

This little church-filled bunch of twisty laneways exists in the walls of Old Babylon where the Roman Emperor Trajan first established a fortress along the river Nile. Parts of the Roman towers are still there presiding over the main road. Nearby, the ninth-century Hanging Church contains some wonderful collections of Coptic designs. Established in the fourth century, the church was initially built over the Roman gate towers and was significantly rebuilt in the ninth century.
