Ein Kerem

The Ein Kerem neighborhood is nestled in a stunning valley between Jerusalem‘s hills and mountains. Ein Kerem has quaint stone houses with arches, churches with bells that chime gaily and cobbled pathways.

Ein Kerem is a popular Christian pilgrimage site due to many Christian legends that are believed to have taken place here. Mary’s Well is a Christian site of interest around which the village grew. The waters of Miriam’s Well are considered holy by Christians and many pilgrims who visit take holy water away with them in bottles.

Since the Byzantine period several churches have been built in Ein Kerem. There are several active churches and monasteries in Ein Kerem. Modern development has not yet touched this beautiful neighborhood and it remains pastoral and cut off from the bustling city.

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.
