Saint Catherine’s Monastery, one of the oldest working Christian monasteries in the world, lies at the foot of the legendary Mount Sinai. A UNESCO world heritage site, the monastery is one of the most visited places in Egypt.

In small groups, enjoy a comprehensive tour of the monastery and surrounding areas, led by an expert guide. The monastery was built by order of Emperor Justinian I, and enclosed the chapel of the Burning Bush, which was ordered to be built by Helena, the mother of Constantine I. This is the site where Moses saw the burning bush.
