settlement in the West Bank
There are numerous buses from Jerusalem, most with numbers between 121-129 or 171-179.
If driving, be careful on the freeway downhill from Jerusalem. It's very steep!
- 1 Monastery of Martyrius (Buses 173 and 174, among others, stop here), ☏ . The ruins of an important monastery from the Byzantine period, including some nice, well-preserved mosaics. It was excavated in the 1980s, and now sits in the middle of a residential neighborhood. It is fenced off, and you have to call ahead of time to arrange entry.
There's not much to do. It's a quiet residential suburb.
