Egypt Shore Excursions
/ St Catherine Monastery Day Tour from Sharm El Sheikh Port
Sharm El Sheikh Tours
Your Egypt Tours Egyptologist guide will pick you up from Sharm El Sheikh port and drive in a comfortable vehicle (230 KM) to St Catherine monastery.
One of the most sacred excursions you can do in Sinai is visiting the place where Moses got the Ten Commandments and spoke to God, where he saw the Burning Bush. At the foot of Mount Sinai, this great and holy place is waiting for you.
The place is called the Monastery of St Catherine and also known as the God-Trodden Mount Sinai. This Greek Orthodox monastery is one of the oldest monasteries in the world. It preserves the relics of St Catherine. The monastery's actual name is the Monastery of the Transfiguration, but it later became associated with St. Catherine of Alexandria, a 3rd-century martyr whose head and hand were brought here for safekeeping in the 10th century. St. Catherine's Monastery became a major pilgrimage destination in the Byzantine Era and it still is today.
Your private guide will explain to you all the history of the area and the monastery. You will learn why this area is so important for Judaism, Christianity and Islam. You will visit the chapel of the Burning Bush, the Basilica of Transfiguration, the monks cells, Moses well and the skull room.
After visiting the highlights of the place, you will drive back to Sharm El Sheikh Port.
