Mount Sinai
At 2285m high and towering over the entire peninsula stands Mt. Sinai against the rugged mountain chains nearby. The mountain is revered by Christians, Muslims and Jews, all of whom believe that God delivered his Ten Commandments to Moses at its summit. The mountain is beautiful to climb around sunset and offers a glamorous view of the Sinai landscape below. 

St. Catherine’s Monastery
St. Catherine's Monastery has been proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage Site owing to its ancient origins. Built during the 6th Century, the monastery was dedicated to the daughter of one of Alexandria's rulers and later expanded to include a surrounding fortress to serve as a refuge for the Christians of southern Sinai. Today, St. Catherine is considered one of the oldest continually-functioning monastic communities in the world, and its chapel is one of early Christianity's only surviving churches.  Surrounding the monastery is St. Catherine's Mountain, known to have the highest summit in Sinai where, on a clear day, it is possible to see the entire peninsula.
