The Mar Saba Monastery

The monastery was founded by Sabbas the Sanctified in 483. Today, the complex houses around 20 monks. It is considered to be one of the oldest inhabited monasteries in the world, and still maintains many of its ancient traditions. One in particular is the restriction on women entering the main compound. The only building that women can enter is the Women’s Tower, near the main entrance. The monastery is closed for visitors on Wednesdays and Fridays (the fasting days of the week).

The monastery kept its importance during the existence of the Catholic Kingdom of Jerusalem established by Crusaders.
