Located on Via Dolorosa in the Old City, Part of an arch known as Ecce Homo is incorporated in the church at the monastery. According to a later tradition, Jesus was brought here after his trial, and it was here that Pontius Pilate presented him to the people. However - the arch, in fact, is part of the triumphal arch that the emperor Hadrian erected. The monastery also has an underground pool, a small archaeological museum and a balcony that overlooks the Temple Mount.
