Excursions from Sharm El Sheikh to St. Catherine's Monastery and Dahab St. Catherine's Monastery

The Greek Orthodox Monastery of Saint Catherine in Sinai, Egypt, was founded between 548 and 565. It lies at the foot of Mount Sinai (Mount of Moses). Here was said to be the burning bush in which God revealed himself to Moses; according to legend, the bones of St. Catherine of Alexandria, although there is no historical evidence of their existence. The monastery, originally dedicated to Theotokos, ie Mary, the mother of Jesus, was built in the west from the 14th and in the east from the 19th century after St. Martyr named Catherine.

The complex with outbuildings and gardens is located an average of 1585 meters above sea level in the heart of South Sinai near the village of Milga below the 2285 m high Mount Sinai and the higher Jebel Katrina and covers an area of 100 hectares. The actual monastery, built as a fortress, has a floor area of 76 by 85 meters.

In order to keep the monastery running in view of the large number of visitors (around 50,000 a year), the opening hours and the accessible areas of the monastery have now been severely restricted. For visitors there is only a café with a few tables and benches in front of the door. The monastery has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2002.Dahab

The former fishing village in the south of the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt has developed into a popular holiday resort. In 2006 about 5000 Bedouins and about 700 foreigners lived in the city.

The ancient attached Nabatean port (see also Petra (city)) was on the ancient trade route and served as a storehouse for the merchant town of Maqnah, opposite modern-day Dahab on the Saudi Arabian side.
