The Hidden MonasteriesTour of the Greek Orthodox monasteries in the Old City
The Greek Orthodox Patriarchate is the oldest of the churches in Jerusalem and includes dozens of small monasteries hidden from the bustle of the Old City streets. Some of the monasteries were converted to residential areas, although some still house monks and nuns. Visit several of the lesser-known monasteries under the control of the Patriarchate, and enter a cultural and religious world that has existed in Jerusalem for the last 1500 years.
