Mar Saba Monastery

The greatest of the ancient monasteries dotting the wilderness of the Judaean Desert, Mar Saba hangs dramatically down the cliff edge of a deep ravine.

As one of the oldest inhabited monasteries in the world, Mar Saba is located 10KM east of Bethlehem, near the desert road to Jerusalem.
A thick wall and slit-like windows give Mar Saba the appearance of a fortress. These defensive features recall plunder by the Persians in 615, and attacks from Bedouins in the following centuries.
