The Garden of Gethsemane is just outside the walls of the Old City and worth a visit. The Olive trees are 2,000 years old and date from the time of Jesus, and yet are still bearing fruit!

Well kept olive grove where Jesus Prayed, And was betrayed by Judas, the night before his Passion. Located outside the wall of Jerusalem. An active church and several chapels offer Mass and Adoration. Take your time here.

Very beautiful and unique scenery of the olive trees where you can take a small walk before going to the Church of All Nations.

This is a peaceful and Holy place to visit with a beautiful Church attached. I only gave it 4 stara because of the old men hanging around who try to tell you about the place and then seek extortionate money for their efforts.

This visit was a unique experience. The olive garden was beautiful and in the middle of it was an aged olive tree that testified a betrayal. I felt like experiencing the scene with Jesus praying in Gethsemane's garden after the Last Supper. Suddenly Judas appeared,...More
