Church of St Catherine

In the nineteenth century, after losing their interest in the Church of the Nativity, the Roman Catholics built a church next door – over the entrance to St Jerome’s cave.


The most wonderful part, for me, was this spectacular sculpture of St George.


  1. I’m proud to have our chapel named St George. What a great sculpture.

  2. Wish I knew how to print out your blog to take to the Healing service this morning. Some do not have this facility. Its great to share in your travels and wonderful sights.

    It’s certainly a magnificent sculpture of St G, almost taken from life. For me, it was the soaring nature of the main body of the church, pointing upward and onward toward the Christ. Also the way there was a multicultural, multi faith aspect to it. Beautiful.
