Church of St Anne, Jerusalem

The Church of St. Anne is a beautiful 12th-century Crusader church, erected over the traditional site of the birthplace of Anne (Hannah), the mother of Mary. It is an excellent example of Romanesque architecture, built by the Crusaders soon after the recapture Jerusalem, close to the Pool of Bethesda. It was built between 1131 and 1138 to replace a previous Byzantine church.
