  St Catherin's Monastery
by duke0123

A visit to St Catherine's Monastery is one of the possibilities in the Sinai.

Although the monastery is far away from the well known places of Egypt it is not wrong to visit it when you're in the Sinai.

The Church of St Catherine, in the middle of the monastery, can be visited. The interior is very overdone but not uninteresting. Behind the church you can see the 'Burning Bush' It is also possible to see bones of deceased munks.

Directions: St Catherine's Monastery is located at the foot of Mount Sinai.
