The majestic olive trees that are 2,000 years old, as well as the beauty of the area, helps make this a very holy site. The church is beautiful and open to the public.

This was such a moving experience for me and my friends. We were able to have the church to ourselves and remember how Jesus prayed in the garden. The church is absolutely a must see. Absolutely gorgeous!!

After viewing Jerusalem from the mount of Olives we walked to the garden to see this wonderful area which has biblical and historical importance, well maintained by Croatian priests and church workers.
