A great visit to the church. Very beautiful inside and we were lucky to have a great guide who could explain the windows and inscriptions and history of the church. Would recommend to do this trip as part of an organised trip.

It is a very nice church. You have to take a cab or rent a service to come here. When I went there the Church was empty so it was excellent that I can take good photos. Great design and great icons. Highly recommended. 👍🏼

Once you get inside the church you would feel that you’re in another world, you would feel the present of god. If you are in Sharm you must go and visit.

We could not believe it took just 2 artists and 2 years to paint the inside of the church. Every painting is a story from the Bible. This is a must see. I have never seen a church like this one anywhere in the world.

Yes. It is open for Muslims. And I went there at 4pm Wednesday. And the Church was not crowded, there were just few tourists. So i took a lot of nice photos.
