First church on Mount Zion?

Mount Zion first church is a theory claiming that an archaeological site on Mount zion bears remains of the very first church of the Christian community in Jerusalem in the 1st century.

The site contains remains a Jewish ritual bath (“Miqveh”), and later a chapel built next to it. 

The site belongs to the Greek Orthodox church, and is closed to the public, but was cleaned in 2018.

Book a Private Tour to the “First Church”

The “First Church” site is in the Mount Zion  and takes about 1 hour to explore.

Since I only offer full day tours, I recommend to contact me for a proposal of a full day tour of Jerusalem, that will also include the site of the “First Church”.
