Your guide will escort you to visit the religious community area in Coptic Cairo to see the old churches as Christianity was born in Egypt's holy land. The religious family's journey in Egypt lasted three and a half to four years around our blessed country.
Roman pagans never wanted the new religion to spread, so they oppressed the growing Christian community here; the worst oppression was by emperor Trajan Decius, Septimius Severus, and ended with Diocletian, the savage killed a lot.
When Christianity became Egypt's official religion, the earliest churches were all built on Babylon's Roman fortress, an area known now as Coptic Old Cairo remains to tell the story.
