Aswan: Half Day San Simon Monastery

4 Hours
On request
  • The fortress-like 7th-century Monastery of St Simeon

St. Simeon (Deir Anba Sim'an), the monastery otherwise known as Anba Hatre who was consecrated a bishop of Syene (now Aswan) by Patriarch Theophilus (385-412 AD). Even though much of the monastery is in ruins, many of its main features are well preserved. It is of considerable architectural interest, for the church provides the most important example of an oblong, domed Christian church in Egypt and the keep, or tower, which served as a permanent residential complex, is the most developed of its kind.
