Within the walls of this medieval fortress is Alabaster Mosque and the Qasr El-Gawahara or Jewel Palace built by Mohamed Ali, on a site which was once occupied by Mameluke and Ottoman palaces. Next you visit the Mosque of lbn Tulan, built in 876 AD, the oldest original mosque in Cairo.

-Continue to Christian Old Cairo, where the Romans constructed the fortress of Babylon. Built over the ruins of the two towers of this fortress is the Church of St. Mary or El-Moallaqah (meaning overhanging or suspended) which is why the most popular name for this church is the hanging Church.

-We visit The Church of St. Barbara & Abu-Serga one of the places where the Holy Family rested after fleeing Israel from King Herod. At the turn of the century this little church, which dates from the 10th-century, was the most important pilgrimage spot in Old Cairo for visiting Christian tourists. There are 24 marble columns lining the central court, and a series of 12th-century icons depicting the 12 apostles.

-The Hanging Church is built into the walls of the water gate of the Roman fortress and is possibly the oldest Christian church in Egypt. Dedicated to the Virgin Mary, it is one of Cairo’s most beautiful churches.

-you will also visit The Old Jewish Synagogue Ben Ezra Synagogue is one of the oldest in Egypt. Set in a shady garden, it was built on the site of 4th-century Christian church. The synagogue was severely damaged by Arabs after the 1967 war with Israel, but it has been almost completely renovated.. At the end transfer you back to your Hotel.
