The Cenacle is the site of the Last Supper, where Jesus and his disciples met to celebrate Passover. It's in the Zion Gate. It' beautiful, a mix of Islam and European design. The Cenacle is truly memorable. It's an upper room.

The Cenacle is believed to be the site of the Last Supper, where Jesus and his disciples met to celebrate Passover. The Upper Room is known as The Cenacle. It is a beautiful room. Some dispute its authenticity, because it is built in Gothic style, which has Middle Eastern and European elements. However, The Cenacle is certainly uplifting, and gives a wonderful sense of the beginnings of Christianity. It's a highlight of Mount Zion.

We were inside The Upper Room in Jerusalem. Early Christians congregated in this synagogue church to escape persecution. The Gothic structure had survived periods of war damage,  restorations,  destruction, and rebuilding by the Crusaders. It was. converted into a mosque during the Ottoman era. Arabic inscriptions, a qibla stairwell, and minaret are visible. Leonardo DaVinci illustrated the Last Supper in his masterpiece. The Vatican venerated The Upper Room with a bronze sculpture of a olive tree.

Jesus and his disciple held The Last Supper here. He broke bread with them. A new covenant was enacted during the Passover meal with unleavened bread and wine. This Holy Communion became doctrinal for the Presbyterians. Matthias was anointed to replace Judas in here.

We descended the stairs to view the Tomb of King David, below.

Another interesting building of the Crusades. It is highly unlikely that it in anyway played a part in the last supper, but still interesting to visit.

Not a top priority destination but if you have time, visiting Mount Zion is worth it. An interesting area to explore, with buildings hundreds of years old - including King David's Tomb and this room of the Last Supper. It is awesome to imagine the 'Last Supper' happening here, and also the disciples gathering many times. It was crowded when we came in November 2022.

If you could imagine a room for the Last Supper this would be it. Certainly worth visiting as part of your walk around Mount Zion but probably not as a special trip. However there does not seem to be any evidence to support its authenticity.

Traditionally, Jesus and his Disciples are believed to have shared their Last Supper here. The Room of the Last Supper is quite large, with Gothic style architecture, which shows Middle Eastern stylistic influences. The Last Supper is thought to have been a Seder, which is the traditional Jewish Passover meal. The Room of the Last Supper will evoke mixed feelings among Christians, because soon after Jesus was taken away and crucified. The Room of the Last Supper is on Mount Zion. Mount Zion is outside the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem, but it is also the City's highest point.

Walking through the zion gate upper floor room slightly monitered the place is holy for christens and muslims too. One can see the mehrab(muslims direction to pray) and other arabic plaques too . One spends some quiet moments there and get the feel of this holy place .Exit is unassuming too but worth a visit .

It is a small room outside the Old City. Not unmissable, but it is interesting getting in there and seeing it. Free. Worth going if you’re around.

The first stop on our old town tour, this newer church is where Jesus had his Last Supper. I just wasn’t feeling it, it was rather newish and not what I expected. It gets better as you move inside the wall - but, worth a quick look.
