The Necropolis of Al-Bagawat

The Necropolis of Al-Bagawat is one of the oldest Christian cemeteries in the world. While most of the tombs are unadorned mud-brick crypts, a few have well preserved biblical scenes etched on the walls. On site guides are more than willing to take you to see paintings of Moses, Jesus and Abraham and other colorful tombs for a tip.
