The Holy Family stopped at twenty‑five points over the course of their Protected content journey from Asyut to Sinai. Each station is the site of monuments such as churches, monasteries, wells, and Coptic icons. These are considered indicators of the path of the Journey of the Holy Family by the Coptic Orthodox Church.
The Holy Family first came through Rafah in the north‑east of Egypt, passing through Tell al‑Farama, east of Port Said.....
Their journey then took them to Musturad and Matariya, where the Tree of the Virgin Mary is located. From their they moved to the Zuwayla Church in Fatimid Cairo, passing through near the future site of the Church of Saints Sergius and Bacchus in what is today the religious complex in Old Cairo. They then went to Maadi, where they crossed the Nile. It is on this part of the Nile that a page from the Bible appeared on the surface of the water containing the famous phrase, “blessed are the people of Egypt.” They arrived in Gebel al‑Tayr in al‑Minya, then proceeded to Asyut, where al‑Muharraq Monastery is located. The first church built by Jesus Christ Himself is also located there. The Holy Family then stayed in the Doronka cave, and from there returned to Bethlehem. ( Protected content .
