Saint Etienne church was built in 1900 over a church from the 5th century built to hold the relics of Saint Stephen. The Dominican order maintaining the site also operates a Bible and archaeology research center (École Biblique et Archéologique Française).

In 1885, a Royal size burial chamber from the First Temple Period was found in the courtyard of the church, right next to the Garden Tomb .
