The Monastery of St. Anthony was founded around the 3rd century at the foot of Mount Al-Qalzam where this saint retired in solitude and lived as an ascetic up to the age of 105. The Monastery of S.Antonio Abate is the oldest in the world. Antonio is considered the predecessor of Christian monasticism, whose first movements took place in the Egyptian desert. The Monastery includes the church of S. Paolo and a library containing 1700 manuscripts.
