Coptic Cathedral of Saint Shenouda, Hurghada

The St. Shenouda cathedral is located in El Dahar area of Hurghada and belongs to the Coptic Orthodox community. It appears to be quite modest from the outside, but inside the architecture is intricate and simply astounding, featured especially on the stained-glass windows and the painted ceilings, as well as interesting religious murals and paintings above the altar. Travellers can find a second church under the main cathedral to accommodate the overflow of worshippers that attend on special religious days.

Holidaymakers can visit the cathedral on their own, but most people choose to go there as part of a guided tour to learn about the fascinating history here, with tour guide’s pointing out the building’s most interesting features. Unlike some other churches, you are allowed to take photographs at Sain Shenouda but you must be considerate of those that are there to worship.
