This church, built by the crusaders is a simple stone building with very little decoration. Located near the beginning of the Via Dolorossa, it is oftern overlooked the crowds walking by. there is a charge to entire the peaceful courtyard and surrounding Pool of Bethesda (Which is dry). It is believed to be the site of one of Jesus' miracles. The church marks the traditional birthplace of the Virgin Mary and is dedicated to her mother. While we were there a church group sang individually and ensemble under the dome. The sound was amazing. Whether or not you share the religious beliefs attached to the church, it is a beautiful historical structure.

This church is impressive for various reasons: Firstly there is its position at the beginning of the Via Dolorosa and on a level higher than the street level. Secondly its architecture is very attractive because of its simple beauty. The church was rebuilt by crusaders in the 12th c. and its history before and after is highly interesting. Thirdly, the garden around it is extremely beautiful. Fourthly, the excavations of the Pools of Bethesda may induce you to stay much longer than planned.

The church of St. Anne is the site of Mary's birth. Its also near the pools of Bethesda. The church is small but has amazing acoustics. We sang together with others in our group. Beautiful!
