“Cenacle” (Latin: “Cenaculum” – “Room”), is the name given to the site identified with the event of the “Last supper” (Mark 14:15; Luke 22:12). The structure at the site was built in Crusaders times or shortly after. In Ottoman times the church was turned into a mosque, and its Michrab and decorated Windows can still be clearly seen. In 1948 it ended being under Israels’ control. To this day the building is maintained by the State of Israel, and is open to all visitors.
Cenacle (from Latin “dining room”, later spelt coenaculum), also known as the “Upper Room” (from Koine Greek and , both meaning “upper room”) was the first Christian church. It is a room in the David’s Tomb Compound in Jerusalem, and was traditionally held to be the site of the Last Supper.
