Saint James Cathedral

tour to saint james cathedralThe Cathedral of Saint James is a 12th century Armenian church in the Armenian Quarter  of Jeruslaem.

The Cathedral is dedicated to Saint James “the Greater” (One of the twelve Apostles) and James “The Just” (The brother of Jesus).

Unfortunately the church is open for only 30 minutes every day (from 15:00 to 15:30). Behind the church is a site that by Armenian local tradition was the House of the High priest Annas, who questioned Jesus together with Caiaphas.
