The monastery is located on one of the peaks of the Carmel ridge, at an altitude of 485 meters.
According to legend, the monastery was built in the place where the prophets of Baal were opposed by the prophet Elijah himself. At the entrance to the monastery, you can see a sculpture depicting a scene of confrontation.
On the second floor of the monastery, a beautiful view of the southern slopes of the Galilee Mountains and the Israel Valley opens up from the observation deck.
