SAINT CATHERINE
She lived in Alexandria during the persecution of Christians, during the reign of Maximinus. Rome tortured her severely because of her faith in Christianity, before finally beheading her in 307 A.D.

Five centuries later a monk saw a vision in which Catherine's body was carried by angels to the top of a mountain in Sinai; therefore they moved her body to the church and the monastery known by her name.
It consists of:-
1-The Transfiguration church.
Built by Emperor Justinian in 530 A.D, it is also known by the great church (THE CATHEDRAL) and is considered one of the oldest churches in Egypt.

2-The Chapel of the Burning Bush.
In 330 A.D Helena, mother of Emperor Constantine, ordered a chapel to be built on the traditional site of Burning Bush.

3-Moses' well.
Inside the wall of the monastery there are many wells, the most famous of which are Moses' well, the Bush well and St. Stephen's well.

4-Al-Amer Bahkam Allah Mosque.
It was built during the Fatimid period in 500 A.H during the the time of Caliph AL-Amer Bahkam Allah.

5-The library.
It's on the 3RD floor of an old building south to the great church.
It's important since it contains a big number of decrees offered by Caliph to the mosque.

6-The oil press.
It's for squeezing olives to extract the oil; it's situated below the mosque.

7-The Garden.
In front of the monastery there are gardens including a cemetery of the monks and a skull house for their heads after they died.
