Housed within an early Byzantine church, the map dates back to the 6th century and provides the earliest accurate depiction of the Middle East, focusing on Jerusalem. Look over this carefully excavated mosaic, with millions of colorful stones depicting an ancient landscape of Biblical locations, events, and regions that predate modern cartography.

  • Spend time at the introductory map room before entering the church. Not a big area remains but definitely important and memorable to see how this place was viewed in the 6th century.  more »
