Ever since Moses and Elijah communed with God in the wilderness, people have sought out the purifying solitude of the desert. Seekers of spiritual fulfillment, whether prophets or ordinary folk, found all they needed here: dwelling caves, freshwater springs and a location close enough to towns and roads to obtain provisions, yet far enough to ensure tranquilly. In this tour we visit the active and archaeological desert monasteries to fill the spirit and the power of the people lived there.
