  • If you're a lover of the archaeological sites you must visit this place. On the floor is the original mosaic of ancient Jerusalem and the Holy land.

  • Interesting to see how the local 'world' was viewed and recorded. Make sure you read all about the map in the adjacent exhibition to understand it fully.  more »
  • It's fragments of a map of Palestine from the life century. What it still allows us to admire some reproductions of city at the time. The set is made of mosaics. A tip: take the time to read the photo reproduction outside the Church, which is a good introduction to the discovery of the fresco that is located inside. And then we understand better!...
