Monastery of the Order of the Sisters of Zion on Via Dolorosa in the Old City. Part of an arch known as Ecce Homo is incorporated in the church in 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.
