Overview

Built between 545 and 565BC, the magnificent 6th century sacred Saint Catherine’s Monastery on the Sinai peninsular is a wonder of religious historical buildings. Located at the base of Mount Sinai (known as Moses Mountain), and close to the town of St Catherine, the walled monastery is a work of art.
It is a Unesco world heritage site with an abundance of pilgrim visitors seeking Christian religious sites worldwide. The monastery was named after Catherine of Alexander and is a Greek Orthodox church and is also the oldest working monastery in the world.
The monastery hosts an array of rooms and places of interest including its own ancient library, beautiful displays of art, along with other fascinating historical facts from the past.
Passing through the pretty town of Dahab surrounded by stunning mountain views is a plus on this relaxing and informative day out in ancient Egypt.
