The monastery became the site of the permanent residence of the Carmelite Order, founded during the crusades in the middle of the 13th century. The name of the order comes from the name of Mount Carmel. The Bible tells Elijah the Prophet fighting the pagan priests on Mount Carmel, during which the name of God was glorified. This biblical story is depicted on the emblem of the order - the hand of Elijah the prophet, squeezing a torch. Another depicted anchor and three six-pointed stars.
