Grotto of Gethsemane

The Grotto of Gethsemane  is sanctified since the 4th century CE as the cave where the disciples waited and witnessed the arrest of Jesus.

A cistern, a fragment of a Greek inscription, and ceiling decoratios attest to the use of the site in both Byzantine and Crusader times.

The Franciscians hold and maintain the site since the 14th century.
