"St.George Monastery" Coptic Cairo - Mar Girgis - Church of St George Tip by vesna04

  St.George Monastery
by vesna04

The whole complex is dedicated to St.George, the saint-warrior who was the roman soldier. The Monastery dates from 7th century. The buildings of the nunnery were closed to the public but it was nice just to have a peep in the peaceful gardens and admire the exterior of this holly place.
The nuns take care of the whole compund including the Church.
