Tomb of the Virgin Mary

Tomb of the Virgin Mary

Thousands of tourists head to the foot of Mount Olives each year to see the tomb of the Virgin Mary.

Although the New Testament didn’t mention anything about the death and burial of Mary, Christians have placed a large crypt on the Church of the Assumption, which is all that remains of the oldest near-complete church in Jerusalem.

On this site, the “Status Quo,” or an understanding between religious communities that have been around for 250 years is in place. The tomb of the Virgin Mary is located before the garden of Gethsemane just across the Kidron Valley from St. Stephen’s Gate.

The Church of the Assumption can be reached by a stairway that leads to an open courtyard. A 50-step Crusader stairway then leads to the crypt, which holds an empty tomb of Mary, as she was assumed to have been taken to heaven body and soul on the third day of her death.

Today, pilgrims still visit the tomb as part of their pilgrimage to the Holy Land. And if you want to do the same, La Vacanza offers a wide array of tour packages to Jerusalem including a stop at the Tomb of the Virgin Mary. Get in touch with us today.
