A big,beautiful church,very well maintained.We visited it as part of a Hurghada town trip.Anyway,not something out of common for a christian,it seemed like any other church in Europe.You don't need more than 10 minutes to see it.Armed guards at the entry.

Visited as part of a coach excursion we didn't have long in here but the building & interior were interesting & there were mosaics & stained glass windows to enjoy. Certainly worth a look if your passing.
