A beautiful and spiritual walk through history

The Mount of Olives in Jerusalem is a pilgrimage for anyone interested in religion and history. Along your way you will see the place where it is believed that Jesus ascended into heaven, the Garden of Gethsemane (where Jesus suffered the night before he was crucified), and the Church of Pater Noster (Roman Catholic), among many others. It is a humbling and almost out-of-body experience to see these sights! 

Located within walking distance of the Four Quarters, you can walk this area on your own or with a group via Abraham Hostels, which hosts lots of tours across the country, including Jerusalem.
