“A Place of Interest in the Old City of Jerusalem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2014 NEW

A visit to St. Anne's includes the archaeological remains of the famous Pool of Bethesda, where Jesus healed the lame man (John 5). The simple but beautiful crusader church has excellent acoustics and singing is encouraged (but be mindful of other groups waiting for their turn).

“Will Heaven sound like this?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2014

Amazing acoustics! Each group took turns singing. Amazing Grace was by far the most popular choice. As we sang I couldn't help but wonder if this was what heaven would sound like!!

A beautiful old church with incredible acoustics. We waited our turn to be able to sing a verse of Amazing Grace.

“Don't miss this one!”

This was incredible. We were able to sing a capella in the chapel. On this site is also the ancient healing Pools of Bethesda, mentioned in the Bible in John 5 :)

“great aucustics”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2014

You come to saint Anne's to hear the many tourists or groups that come to sing or play.
Spontainiously guys will start to sing- also has some of the most friendly and polite staff and the white fathers who own the place are fantastic.
