The Benedictine Monastery is one of the most beautiful crusader buildings to have survived in Israel. The remains of the crusader resurrection church were restored by the French government and handed over to the Benedictine Order in the 19th century. Remnants of 12th century frescoes can be seen on the monastery walls, and a little spring flows out of the monastery crypt.
