As part of a group of 12 Quakers we spent 3 beautiful days here. Not only had they rooms to stay in but some really ancient parts of Jerusalem underneath the old building. Very friendly, and good food.

The roman roads, the underground waterways, the hidden history beneath the streets of the Old City are all here. Not many people visit, which is a shame. This place really gives a sense of history. Refreshingly, this site is not presented in a massively politicized...More
