Church of St. George (Mar Girgis) Tours

19 reviews
Church of St. George (Mar Girgis)
Dedicated to one of the region’s most popular Christian saints, the current Church of St. George (Mar Girgis) was constructed at the beginning of the 20th century, although the original was established as far back as the 10th century.

This Coptic Christian church has a distinctive style, having been built on top of a round Roman tower; it is the only circular church in Egypt. Its dark interior is an atmospheric place, thick with incense and with sunbeams filtering in through stained glass windows. There’s a flight of steps leading down into the old Roman tower, although this is closed off to the public.

The Monastery of St. George next door is also closed to visitors. The Coptic Moulid (saints’ festival) of Mar Girgis is held here each year in April.

Practical Info

The Church of St George is located in Old Cairo just moments from the Mar Girgis metro station.
Address: Coptic Cairo, Cairo, Egypt
Hours: Daily 8am-4pm
