Saint Catherine's Monastery

Saint Catherine's Monastery commonly known as: Santa Katarina. The official name is the Holy Monastery for God. It lies on the Sinai Peninsula, at the mouth of the ravine at the foot of Sinai, in the city of Saint Catherine in Egypt - South Sinai.

The Orthodox monastery (part of the wider Eastern Orthodox Church) is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Built in the years 548 and 565, the monastery is one of the oldest Christian monasteries operating in the world. Near to the monastery there is a small city rising from hotels and swimming pools, called the City of Saint. Catherine.

According to tradition, Catherine of Alexandria was a Christian martyr condemned to death at the wheel. When it failed, she was beheaded. According to tradition, the angels took her and left her on Mount Sinai. Around the year 800, monks from the monastery in Sinai found the remains of St. Catherine.

Although the monastery is commonly known as Saint. Catherine, the full official name of the monastery is the Holy Monastery God crowded at the top of Sinai.

The monastery has become a favorite place of pilgrimage.
