Package Itinerary

Debre Sina Monastery Eritrea  is a monastery in the highlands of Eritrea near Keren in the Anseba Region. It is the site of a pilgrimage by Eritrean Orthodox believers each year in June. The pilgrimage centers on a church above the village where a vision of Mary was said to have been seen by shepherd girls beneath a large boulder. The church is built adjacent to and over the rock where the vision was seen. The pilgrimage includes thousands of ordinary Eritrean believers camping for one night in the village of Debra Sina, singing, drumming, chanting and celebrating Mary.

Seen in this picture is  the cave church where Mary Mother of Jesus and Baby Jesus is believed to have spent 40days when she was fleeing from the persecution of King Herod.

It is believed that Mary, accompanied by Joseph and Salome fled first to Egypt for fear of persecution by King Herod of Judea and stayed a few days there They then moved on and arrived at the nearby caves of Debre Sina in Eritrea and stayed for forty days
