Church of St. Barbara

About Church of St Barbara

This ancient church is located just at the corner past Abu Serga, and it is dedicated to a martyr who died in the hands of her father, while he was beating her for attempting to make him a Christian.

The supposed remains of Barbara rest in a small chapel left of the altar, in the company of the remains of other saints.  After the church, there is an iron gate that leads to the calm but large Coptic cemetery.
