Nestled at the foot of the Moqattam hills, this Christian monastery was constructed in the 1970s. Its patron saint, Saint Samaan is famously associated with miraculously moving mountains. Marvel at murals carved onto the rocks that depict scenes from the Bible and admire the spectacular surroundings. The amphitheater descends into the natural caves, providing a view from the top will take your breath away.
