Located on the Sinai peninsula, Sharm el Sheikh has been the site of pivotal religious events. At the foot of Mount Horeb lies the Greek Orthodox Monastery of St. Catherine, said to be the Mount Sinai of the Old Testament and the place where the prophet Moses encountered the Burning Bush and received the Ten Commandments. Pilgrims have been traveling to this site since the 5th century, and each day hundreds of visitors come to pay their respects. Sharm El Sheikh is also the diving and snorkeling mecca of the Red Sea region.
