All about the trip
Our guide will meet you at your hotel in Alexandria and together you will travel by car to your destination. First of all, you will visit Deir al-Baramus. This monastery is probably the first one established in Wadi El-Natrun. Next stop is the visit to Dier Anba Bishoi, named after the patron Saint St. Bishoi, whose remains are still in the monastery. The monastery has been restored several times after it was destroyed at the hands of the Barbarians and Bedouins. This church is nowadays used only during the summertime.
We will transfer to visit Dier Abu Maqar, the richest of all these monasteries. It is the most secluded of the Wadi Natrun monasteries. The monastery is named after Saint Macarius the Great, an Egyptian monk who lived in a cave and spent his days in prayers.
You will end your trip with Deir El-Suryani Monastery, the smallest and most compact of them all. This monastery is used by Syriac monks, and it is home to several important Coptic relics.
At the end of this tour, we will drop you off at your hotel in Alexandria.What Wikipedia Says
