  • You will see this as part of the churches tour and it does not stand out particularly as it is somewhat overwhelming by then!  more »
  • This is a small place and part of the church itinerary. Probably you will be so tired that the main focus is on rest and return. But, worth to visit, obviously.  more »

  • Tomb is nothing special
  • Worth to see. In the middle of a deep ditch near Bet Golgotha and Bet Uraiel is the so-called Tomb of Adam, which is a hollow in a large block of stone. There is nothing in the middle. Two rooms, which once served as the cell by hermits. The very idea of forge in the rock the other Jerusalem is worthy of admiration.
