The church named after St. Stephan and located in the Kidron valley is claiming to be over the placed where Stephanus was stoned to death (Acts 7:59).

Crusader era sources were apperently the first to connect Stephanus to this area.

Despite its central location and importance, this site is not frequently visited by Christian pilgrims.
