The Bridgettine Sisters opened this new guesthouse devoted to inter-religious dialogue on December 8th 2006. The guest house offers a tremendous view of the Old City of Jerusalem and is within a five minute walk to Gethsemane and several other shrines. The building now provides a safe guest house for pilgrims and other visitors as well as a conference center and meeting hall.
The houses sits on two hectares and is located at the foot of Mount of Olives. The complex was originally built during the period of 1974-76 as a medical research centre, the Gedda Institut. Later, the property was donated to the Holy See and in 2004, Pope John Paul II entrusted it to the Bridgettine Order in order to establish a foundation devoted to Christian Unity and to Inter-Religious Dialogue.
The Old City of Jerusalem is approximately a 20 minute walk however, the 75 bus offers frequent transportation to the Damascus Gate.
