As you reach the summit you will find a small chapel and a mosque. If the prospect of climbing the 3,700 steps to the summit of Moses mount is not for you, then why not take in the splendor of Saint Catherine’s Monastery instead.
Built in the fourth century, this fortress monastery has been a pilgrimage for more than 15 centuries. Situated at the foot of Mount Sanai , the monastery houses a library of ancient manuscripts and icons that are second only to those of the Vatican.
See the basilica and the legendary “Burning Bush” from which God spoke to Moses. Learn about how St Catherine brought Christianity to the masses. A fascinating day full of history and culture .
Mount Sinai (Moses Mount) is one of the highest mountains in Egypt. It is 2285 m high. As tradition of 3 religions (Jewish, Christian, and Islamic) tells us this mount was the place where Moses received the Decalogue. Christians believe that everybody who will take the difficult way to its top and meet there the sunshine will get the forgiveness of the sins. So a lot of people of any age and strength make this trip to their earthly circumcision.
