Pinsteps. St. Mark's Church

The Church of St. Mark is located in the northeastern part of the Armenian Quarter of the Old City in Jerusalem. The monastery of St. Mark belongs to the community of the Syrian Christian church. It was built in the 12th century on the ruins of a 4th century church. At this place, it is believed, stood the house of Mary, the mother of John, called St. Mark, and is the oldest Christian church. According to another version, the Last Supper took place at this place. This is evidenced by the inscription on the stone at the entrance to the church in the ancient Syriac language (the Aramaic dialect), found in 1940 during restoration. The interior of the church is decorated with a gilded altar, a portrait of St. Mark, as well as a picture of the Virgin Mary with the Child, according to the tradition, painted by the Evangelist Luke.

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на epraisman@gmail.com и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?
