Saint Hilarion Monastery

Saint Hilarion Monastery: It is considered to be the first and most important monastery in Palestine. It lies on a 22-meter-high foothill around 15 km to the south west of Gaza, around 3 km to the west of Nuseirat camp, and around 500 m from the seashore. Based on the match between the monastery and that found in the old scripts, the archaeological excavations have shown the existence of the biggest monasteries in Palestine, where there has never been found similar ones in design and area.
