Beautiful Cathedral
TripAdvisor RatingReviewed on January 17, 2020

Very beautiful building from outside and from inside. It's a quiet place, easy to find if you have a map of the Old City. Amazing mozaics and sculptures inside. Many countries participated in ornamenting some spots inside the Cathedral. I just enjoyed being there.

Beautiful Mosaic of the Blessed Mother and Child!

On our last full day of our pilgrimage to the Holy Land, our tour guide took the forty-nine of us to the Dormition Abbey. The mosaics were beautiful! I especially like the beautiful mosaic of the Blessed Mother and child. Our guide explained to us that the Blessed Mother “fell asleep “ here, she died. It was definitely a wonderful place to be during our pilgrimage. Wonderful place!

Not a highlight, but may as well see whilst you're there

Dormition Abbey is a lovely piece of architecture and worth admiring. The sculpture of the "sleeping" Virgin Mary downstairs is also worth the visit. All in all, a beautiful church.
