Many Coptic Christians populate this incredible "Garbage City" in Cairo. They collect the city's trash and sort out the recyclables to sell and make a living. The bags are in the streets, in the buildings, on the roofs, and balconies. A very different way of life most of us could never imagine. 

Special trip from Tour Egypt Travel® takes you to interesting Garbage City located inside Cairo. This place is not a historical attraction but behind it stands Monastery of Saint Samaan El Kharaz. It is also called Church of Saint Simon the Tanner which contains 7 churches and chapels hidden in a series of natural caves in Muqattam hills overlook City of Garbage.
