Featuring prominently in the New Testament, Mt of Olives serves as a site of religious pilgrimage for Jews and Christians alike. Jewish scripture identifies the mountain as King David's escape route from Absalom and the site of some of Jesus' prophesies. Much of the mountain serves as a Jewish cemetery for important figures, as many believe Messiah will first return to this spot and resurrects the Jews buried there. Visit the many pilgrimage stops on the mountain, such as the teardrop-shaped modernist Franciscan church.

Mt of Olives Reviews
Lohnt sich auf jeden Fall, um Jerusalem von einem anderen Blickwinkel zu sehen. Viele Touristen dort, das stört aber nicht sonderlich. more »It's definitely worth seeing Jerusalem from a different angle. Many tourists there, but that doesn't bother much.
3 oliviers dont 2 seraient succeptibles d'avoir vu le Christ, le tout entouré d'une grille et de 5 ou 6 oliviers plus jeunes. Le mont des oliviers a été coupé en 2 pour laisser passer une route, quell... more »3 olive trees, 2 of which would be likely to have seen Christ, all surrounded by a grid and 5 or 6 younger olive trees. The mount of olive trees was cut in half to let a road pass, what a shame. Below this road an olive grove with abando, it would be the remains of the olive tree mount. Those who had visited it a long time ago had told us that they felt an emotion, we arrived too late. Otherwise it's a nice view of Jerusalem, no more.
The important place of the old and new testament of the Bible where and around which many incidences of Bible took place. Important place to visit.
