The church itself is quite modern and simple. There are two things that are worth the visit: drink excellent coffee in the coffee house and take the 180 staires to the top of the bell tower, for an amazing view of the old city and...More

We enjoyed our visit here, in that the church wasn’t as busy as others on the same day. If you are able to climb, go to the top of the Bell Tower for a small fee and take in the views of the Old City

The church itself is nothing extraordinary. But, after paying 15 Ils you can visit the excavations and learn about the interesting history of the place. If you are fit enough - I highly recommend to go up the tight spiral stairs (hundreds of them). The...More

The church itself is quite plain, but it is worth a visit if you decide to climb the narrow, circular staircase of 178 steps of the tower as the panoramic views of Jerusalem from 40 meters up are simply breathtaking!

Compared to Church of Holy Sepulchre & John the Baptist Church, The Redemmer was less crowded. If you are physically fit, you could climb up the tower in a bid to get some fresh air & a good view. If not, you could go to...More

Although I have often visited this church in the past, this was the first time I took the time to sit and relax in the cloistered cafe hidden in back of the church. A limited menu but something for anyone. Wonderful place to catch your...More

I think it is 180 steps to the top of the church's tower. It is spiral and VERY narrow. I am not sure if one can climb up if someone is coming down. As a senior adult I made it with a few rest stops....More
