Sts. Sergius and Bacchus Church, also known as Abu Serga, in Coptic Cairo is one of the oldest churches in Egypt, dating back to the 4th century. It is traditionally believed to have been built above the cave where Joseph, Mary and Jesus rested at the end of their journey into Egypt. The well is located near the cave were they stayed.
