The “Good Samaritan inn” is an archaeological site next to the Jerusalem-Jericho road, identified as the site mentioned in the ‘Good Samaritan” parable (Luke 10:25-37).

The site was inhabited in the first century, and used again in the Byzantine and Crusaders periods.

In 2009 the site was opened to the public after being developed to an archaeologial park displaying both the antiquities discovered at the site, as well as a rare and unique collection of ancient Jewish, Christian and Samaritan mosaic floors.
