St Catherine's Monastery "remarkable and moving" aspect of Egypt holiday

Travellers who visit St Catherine's Monastery on a holiday to Egypt will find it "remarkable and moving", it has been suggested.

The Mount Sinai attraction has been highlighted by the Daily Telegraph in its readers' holiday guide.

One of its correspondents highlighted a memorable trip to Sharm el Sheikh and the beauty of the religious building, which was constructed between 527 and 565 AD.

It contains Arab mosaics, oil paintings and priceless antiquities, while also housing a small mosque.

The news source's commentator also suggested travellers view the stars in the night sky and try camel riding.

A trip to St Catherine's Monastery forms part of trips Adventure Company can arrange for holidaymakers.

For example, there is an optional jaunt to the attraction as part of the Active in the Sinai Teenage Adventure, which also includes a jeep safari, boat snorkelling and a chance to try windsurfing or diving in the Red Sea.
