Info: Mount Zion

Mount Zion is the name of a hill in Jerusalem outside the Old City. The term Zion since ancient times referred to the entire city of Jerusalem and the Land of Israel.

The most visited sites in Mount Zion are the Tomb of David, the Cenacle where according to tradition, the Last Supper took place. The precursor of Yad Vashem is also located on Mount Zion. Other attractions is the cemetery where Oskar Schindler was buried and the Dormition Abbey.

The winding road leading to Mount Zion is known as the Pope Road because it was paved in honor of the historic visit to Jerusalem that Paul VI made in 1964. From 1948-1967, this narrow strip was designated as “no man’s land” between Israel and Jordan.

Psalm 125:1 25
A Song of Ascents. Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever.
