This church is built atop historic remains from Aelia Capitolina. You can see the extension of the Ecce Homo arch inside the church through a glass window and the pavement of Hadrian's Forum underneath. Also a good place to visit on a hot day.

We did not stay but went to the roof for a great view of the city and the Dome of the Rock. Friendly staff and a great site for photos. There is a cafeteria and you can get a room in a great location.
