Neighborhood: Old Cairo

The spiritual serenity of this old convent is astounding. While the main buildings are closed to the public, the nuns can often be seen tending the garden or dusting the corners. Pass the grafitti-stained stone walls to a dark and eerie chapel that contains an icon of Saint George. Remember to remove your shoes if you want to enter the sanctum.
