A great place for prayer and reflection in an oasis of calm. Beautiful architecture in a stunning setting in the middle of an archaeological site. Well worth a visit. Warm welcome was received by all of us visiting that day.

During our visit the singing in the church was just outstanding...for an older church the acoustics made it hard to pull yourself away...

One of the most beautiful churches in Jerusalem. the Church of St Anne is the best-preserved Crusader church in Jerusalem. It marks the traditional site of the home of Jesus’ maternal grandparents, Anne and Joachim, and the birthplace of the Virgin Mary.

The acoustics in this crusader church are awesome. Almost every tour group will come in and sing - some better than others. Stay until someone sings "Amazing Grace". It is an outstanding spiritual experience in a city full of religious sites that often disappoint.

The church is close to an open air museum where was the pools of bethsaida. The church itself have free entrance and an incredible acoustic. We were lucky to see a priest singing. Magnifique.

Every time I go to Jerusalem the visit of this church is a must. Its acoustics are formidable. Also, the priest that overlooks the visits is kind, funny, and pleasant. Plan to find a moment when you are by yourself, go up front, and sing...More

This church is nothing special architectural wise, but has great acoustics. Great place to listen to random groups and individuals singing praise and worship music in many languages. We sang a song and it was very powerful!
