Coptic churches and monasteries
The Coptic Christians form an important minority in Egypt. The area of Luxor has always been a stronghold. The Coptic Church also produced some very beautiful churches and monasteries. Some of them are in a pitiful state. Others have been very well been taken care of. A few examples can be visited in Luxor. They are a very valuable part of Egyptian heritage, although they hardly appear on any itinerary. It will be my pleasure to show them to you.
