Day Tour to St. Simeon Monastery from Aswan

St. Simeon Monastery
Orthodox Monastery of St. Simeon dating back to the 6th or the 7th century and represents typical example of early Christian monasteries. In its glorious days it was one of Egypt's largest Coptic monasteries with thousands of  monks. It was first dedicated to a saint and bishop of Aswan of the 4th century whose name was anba Hydra (AnbaSamaan).

10 meters high walls and towers were used to keep enemies away. The monastery was rebuilt in the 10th century, but destroyed by Saladdin in 1173. In the level of the tower there are some beautiful remains of early Coptic paintings and icons on the walls as well as arches for ventilation.
