Terror attacks and security unrest in Egypt since 2013, effectively removed the Upper Egyptian province of Minya from the international tourism map. Now, with security under control, the Egyptian government has decided to once again promote Minya as a destination. The Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities is continuing excavation projects and restoration of sanctified sites that the Holy Family - the infant Jesus, Mary, and Joseph - are believed by Christians and Muslims, alike, to have visited when they fled Israel out of fear of persecution by King Herod.
