Sorry but this was really disappointing. There's nothing to see. There's a crypt under some rocks and a chapel surrounded by cloisters with 185 versions of the Lord's Prayer in different languages. It seems to be a relatively modern, 20th century I'd guess, full of...More

This is a wonderful experience of where Jesus walked. The grounds are beautiful, and the place is very meaningful. It can be crowded.

Here the Our Father is written in over 100 languages and to see it in Cherokee and Chinese and languages I had never heard of was almost enough, but to hear people from all over the work praying the same thing, even more amazing.
