It is an exclusive 5 star Relais that came about from the careful restoration of the ancient monastery of Saint Catherine, which was originally constructed in 1275 for a community of Benedictine nuns. Its 18 suites are situated a short distance from the center of Saint Francis’ city in a quiet natural setting. The ancient place has preserved the details of the mediaeval monastery, designed along the lines of Benedictine rules calling for a “human city” for individuals. Each ample room is unique, with niches, frescoes, cross-vaulted ceilings and yet with all the modern comforts of technology which pleasantly surround the body and the mind with simple elegant formality in complete harmony with the spiritual nature of the ancient stones.
