Both these adjacent districts are outlying suburbs of present day Cairo, only 10 kms or so from the city center. At the time of the Holy Family's arrival there, Ain Shams was home to a large Jewish community, In Matariyah, a tree still stands to this day, still regularly visited, called "Mary's Tree", for the Family is believed to have rested in its shade. Setting out next towards Old Cairo, the Holy Family rested for a while in Zeitoun, ( virgin Mary Church,) on their way; then proceeded along a course which traverses what are now crowded, bustling quarters of Cairo Your lunch at oriental restaurant you have chance to join learning and testing your food drive back to your hotel with best memories
