006 Immanuel Church and the Protestant Compound

Next to Jaffa Gate, across from the Tower of David.

Architect: James Wood Johns, 1849

Guided tours of the oldest Protestant church in the Middle East, which contains Jewish motifs and is concealed within a guesthouse compound. Expert stonecutters from Malta were commissioned to build the church, whose techniques were used by later generations of stonecutters in Jerusalem. The tours will also include the small on-site museum, where original models designed by Conrad Schick are on display, as well as the library. Guided tours in Hebrew and English will start every 30 minutes until 16:00.
