Church of San Simone

Church Cairo, Egypt

Discover Church of San Simone

Beautiful churches and special monasteries are present everywhere in the world, but this is one of the most original places of worship that is housed on a hill, and particularly inside a cave. The rock church of San Simone in Mokattam, a hill east of Cairo, Egypt, is a beautiful architectural work in a natural setting and offers a place for the people of Zabbaleen to carry out their religious practices. The church was founded in 1975, and space has since been particularly suitable for hosting prayers and cult ceremonies
