The new site of the Custody of the Holy Land dedicated to the Church of Gethsemane

The site www.getsemane-en.custodia.org offers in-depth and updated contents in four languages (Italian, English, Spanish and French), along with a rich gallery of images that can easily be downloaded.

The thematic sections, organized in a simple and intuitive manner, accompany the visitor in his or her discovery and understanding of one of the most important places in Christianity.

A special section is dedicated to the project for preservation and training that ATS pro Terra Sancta is currently carrying out in the Church in conjunction with the Mosaic Center of Jericho, with the support of the PMSP program of the Italian Consulate in Jerusalem and under the scientific supervision of a special commission of the Studium Biblicum Franciscanum.

The Virtual Photo Tour of Gethsemane, one of the highlights of the site, permits a 360° immersion in the sacredness of the Church, the Garden of Olives and the Grotto of Gethsemane.

Happy Viewing!
