The Holy Family

Added on May 15, 2017

Egypt’s tourism minister, Yehia Rashed, hopes to attract faithful travelers, with the support of Vatican City, to retrace the route taken by the Holy Family, consisting of Joseph, Mary and baby Jesus, when they fled to Egypt thousands of years ago to flee King Herod’s persecution. The story of their escape and the paths they travelled through the country have been detailed by scholars of history across the world. Rashed plans on tailoring an unforgettable experience that includes the Churches and Monasteries where they stayed, the places where Jesus performed miracles, and even caves where they sought shelter.
