קו מקווקו

The Byzantine period was characterized by a significant increase in the number of pilgrims coming to Jerusalem; many of them leaving behind written testimonies of their journey to the city in the form of travel journals. This tour focuses the journals of pilgrims who sought to see, first-hand, the holy sites and touch the stones and relics of the holy city.

The tour begins in the City of David and Davidson Center and discuss the Byzantine Shiloach Church and an unknown monastery. It will continue along the Kidron and viewing to the Kidron Tombs and temple mount as they appear in the pilgrimage literature. The tour concludes at the tomb of Mary next to the Lions’ Gate.

Return from Lion’s Gate to Jaffa Gate by bus.
