“One of the heavenly places in Old Jerusalem”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

The compound of the Church of St. Anne is like in heaven. it is so contradict to the area where it is located. there is a beautiful garden over there where you can seat and relax. the Church is very unique due to its amazing acoustic. You can here there people from all over the world singing there. I highly recommend to wait for one person or a very small group that pray and sing. You can feel the sound all over you. At the Compound there is also the Pools of Bethesda where Jesus conducted one of his miracles. You can watch a video from this place that I have at my Video blog about Jerusalem - JerusalemExperience.com

“A wonderful place to visit”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

This church is at the far end of the Via Dolorosa and does not seem to get as many touring groups which is good! The Church has wonderful acoustics and groups come to sing there. It also has very interesting Roman ruins in the grounds. There is a small charge fornentry.

“Sound effects are beautiful”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

The building itself is nice, but the remarkable and noteworthy thing about this church is its sound effects, make sure you are there while others are there and folk are singing, the effects are beautiful
