This is definitely a must see when you are on a tour in Israel. This has been a stop on all three of my trips (1998,1999, and 2016). This is just an amazing experience.

You need to use your imagination when you are in the Cenacle / Upper Room to experience the place. The building is just an large open area, no furniture, not much to see.

This is a great place to see Crusader architecture: Pointed arches, elbow capitals and the rest. The stained glass windows are Ottoman but nice as well.

There's not a lot to see but I think its a significant sight which shouldn't be missed Interesting getting in & out of the Upper Room There are nice views from up there of the Old City The room itself has steps on 2 sides & although not much in it enjoyed the experience never the less as we enjoy... 更多
This is truly a big room.The room of the Last Supper, tall columns with details on each pillar. Seeing this room puts one in the time of Jesus...disciples. Many arches, looks kind of gothic. There is a hall of washing of the feet. This place one must not miss.
