I was interested that when you step through the gates, you are actually leaving the country and entering France. This property is located on French sovereign soil.

This lovely church was the home of Jesus’ maternal grandparents, Anne and Joachim. It is so serene. There is a beautiful garden outside. Be sure to stop and visit this church while visiting Jerusalem.
