The Ecce Homo Pilgrim House is situated in the heart of the historic Old City of Jerusalem, on the famous Via Dolorosa.
All the world-reknown holy places are within easy walking distance and Ecce Homo itself is a location revered by Christians for its importance in the Passion of Jesus.
The house, owned by The Congregartion of Notre Dame de Sion, offers hospitality to all and we pride ourselves in receiving guests from all over the world, as groups or individuals.
You will find Ecce Homo has a 'comfortable' style - an historic Jerusalem building, built around 1856 from the warm stone of the Old City.
Additional to our Pilgrim House facilities, Ecce Homo houses the Convent of the Sister of Notre Dame de Sion and the Community of Chemin Neuf.
A simple Basilica is housed within the complex and visitors are at liberty to enter for reflection and prayer. Also, the visitor can see the Lithostrotos, Roman Paving, associated with the Passion of Jesus.
We look forward to welcoming you at Ecce Homo. Shalom - Salaam....
Ecce Homo Convent was founded in 1856 by the Congregation of Notre Dame de Sion. Since 2006 the ministry in Ecce Homo has been shared with the Community of Chemin Neuf.
