St. George's Monastery

This Greek Orthodox monastery was built in the late 5th century AD by John of Thebes. He became a hermit and moved here from Egypt in AD 480. The monastery was named St. George after the most famous monk who lived at the site – Gorgias of Coziba. Destroyed in 614 by the Persians, the monastery was rebuilt in the Crusader Period. It fell into disuse after the expulsion of the Crusaders. In 1878 a Greek monk, Kalinikos, settled here and restored the monastery, finishing it in 1901.

Вот так иногда спрятаться бы ... но ненадолго :)

Вот..., прятались, уходили в пустыню... Это сейчас здесь и в других местах Иудейской пустыни более-менее комфортно. А уж прежде - совсем не мёд был. Спасибо большое, Олег!
