We went with friends, were able to wander and admire, the guardians were very friendly. We even bought bread from the shop. We even ventured on the roof to see the view over the Red Sea.

The church was a very interesting view into the past. Especially the photos of Mary, Joseph and Jesus. The origins of the church date back before the introduction of the Romans to the African continent and portray the Holy family as people of color.

The church is pure beauty, the interior is art, several floors with even a school for the children, historically very interesting, the local coptes can go and stay on a terrasse and stay with their family it is a meeting point

Amazing place you must visit in Sharm Al-Shiekh , i have never seen a church like Al-Samaeyn church in whole Egypt. Great cathedral with a unique outside and inside design. The golden is the main color inside the church , with many paints and icons that tell the magnificent stories of the old age and the story of the savior... More
