    This is a sacred trip. Once you are picked from the hotel, you reach the monastery in about 4 hours. It is a huge monastery so you will have a dedicated guide who will make your trip easier and much more comfortable. This monastery has a huge wall that surrounds it and inside live monks and an abbot. About 1600 years ago, St. Anthony lived here in a cave. You can also go to see the cave but you need to cross 1000 steps to reach the summit and see the cave. Let me tell you if you cannot walk well, do not rise those steps as you have to come down as well. Other than this, you can also see the alleys, chapels, and beautiful gardens. Then you will be going to Zaafara to have your lunch. Post that, you will have another trip 40 KMS back to the Monastery of St. Paul. It is a much smaller one, but the historical importance is not that small. The treasures you get to see here are altars, icons, an old olive press, an old pulley, and a coffin that has the relics of St. Paul. Once these trips are done you are taken back to the hotel.
