The Church of Saint Barbara in Old Cairo, Egypt Church of Saint Barbara (Sitt Barbara)
by Jimmy Dunn We are told that Saint Barbara was a beautiful young lady possibly of Asia Minor decent (though some stories say she lived in Heliopolis). She apparently lived during the early part of the 4th century (though again some references place her in the early part of the 3rd century). She was the daughter of a wealthy nobleman and merchant, Djoscorus, who was a pagan. Tradition provides that Djoscorus built a magnificent tower to safeguard his daughter, perhaps from the growing influence of Christianity. However, during his frequent business trips abroad, she was converted to Christianity. Read Story

The Tour Egypt Travel and Vacation Guide
When most people think of Egypt, they think of antiquities, but Egypt offers much more. Certainly it is a prime location to see our great heritage from the ancient world, including Pyramids and wonderful temples, but it is also part of the Holy Land, and tours to Christian and other religious monuments are popular. Yet Egypt offers many adventure tours as well, including nature and desert treks, great scuba diving and even golf, fishing and birding expeditions. Alternatively, one may choose to simply relax on Egypt's wondrous Red Sea or Sinai coasts, or take in the high culture of Cairo, including grand operas, fine restaurants and its exciting night life. One may even leisurely float down the Egyptian Nile on a luxurious river boat, or mix and match these vacations, including excursions into deeper Africa or places such as Petra, Jordan.
