Greek Orthodox Cemetery in Old Cairo

The cemetery stands on the same grounds as the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Alexandria’s offices and the Greek Orthodox Church of St. George, which dates to the 10th century or earlier. The cemetery contains another Greek Orthodox Church, that of the Dormition of the Virgin.
