It later become more important during the early era of Christianity in Egypt as can be seen by the legacy of monasteries. Today it is the centre of many monasteries groups dating back to the fourth century AD. One of the most important monasteries today in ni Wadi El- Natroun is Dier Anba Bishoi ( Bischoi) it was named after the patron St. Bishoi who immigrated to the site and lived in solitude. Then monastery was restored several times after it has been destroyed at the hands of the barbers. It has 5 churches the main one is the St Bishoi church which goes as early to the 9 century Ad. This church today is only used during the Summertime. To the east of this church lies another one known as the church of Al- Adra (the virgin), it is only used during the winter month. At the second flower of the monastery which goes back to the 12 century AD ,there is the church of angel. Also there is the charge of St. George which is not used at all. The monastery contains the remains of St. Bishoi, and Ephraim the Assyrian, and Paul of Tomah.

In 2002, Alexandria recaptured the spirit of its richest legacy—the Great Library of Alexandria—by opening the new Bibliotheca Alexandrina.
