The church, baptistry, basilicas, public buildings, streets, monasteries, houses and workshops in this early Christian holy city were built over the tomb of the martyr Menas of Alexandria, who died in A.D. 296.
- Abu Mena (also Abu Mina) was a town, monastery complex and Christian pilgrimage center in Late Antique Egypt, about 45 km southwest of Alexandria.
- The site was added to the list of World Heritage in Danger in 2001 after recent agricultural efforts in the area led to a significant rise in the water table, which has caused a number of the site’s buildings to collapse or become unstable.
Year of Inscription: 1979
