Garden of Gethsemane

The Garden of Gethsemane, at the foot of the Mount of Olives, is believed to be the place Jesus came to with his disciples the night after the Last Supper. Gethsemane is a Greek word meaning olive-oil press and this seems to have been what was here when Jesus passed through. It is quite fascinating to see olive trees that were probably mere saplings in Jesus’ time.

The neighboring Church of all Nations was built in the twenties and pictorially relays the events that took place here in stunning mosaics that reach from the floor to the ceiling.

Across the lane is a less-frequented grove and visitors often arrange to spend some private time there in worship and contemplation.

Charlotte Noris

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year. For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
