The Cave Church holds up to 2,000 worshipers and hosts services surrounded by its rugged cave walls.
The church is also the heart of the local Christian community. It’s a quiet and serene spot surrounded by greenery. And it’s an off the beaten path destination partly because the streets are narrow and not easy to access.
How to get there: Take an Uber to the Cave Church. Although this neighborhood is crowded, it’s a district of Cairo like any other. So you don’t need a guide to visit the church. Though if you want to explore the surrounding neighborhood or visit the recyclers, it’s better to hire a guide who knows their way around.
Nearby: Azhar Park and the Citadel are about a half hour taxi ride away.
