Welcome to St Katherine Protectorate

Rising up out of the desert and jutting above the other peaks surrounding the monastery is the towering 2285m Mt Sinai (Gebel Musa). Tucked into a barren valley at the foot of Mt Sinai is the ancient St Catherine’s Monastery. Approximately 3.5km from here is the small town of Al Milga, which is also called Katreen and is known as the ‘Meeting Place’ by local Jabaliyya Bedouin.
