Description

Located 230 kilometers from Cairo, south of Suez City and 45 kilometers west into the eastern desert, Saint Antony Monastery is the largest of the Coptic monasteries built beneath the cliffs of Mount Kalalah. Climb the cave above the monastery with a monk guide and enjoy the view from almost 680 meters above. The Monastery looks like a village with streets, with its several Churches decorated with frescoes. The oldest structure in the Monastery is the church of St. Antony, built over the saint's tomb by his disciples.
