Old City of Jerusalem, Jerusalem District

  • very small entrance tunnel and slippery stairs.
  •  Interesting Features
    The sound inside. Acoustics is just great. And also a large water cistern with very narrow entry tunnel. Also it could be kinda a quest to find the place. Well, I won't spoil the fun of finding it, just a tip - look behind the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Or for the 8th station.
