- A narrow passage next to the Tomb of Mary leads to this small Franciscan chapel, a cave where tradition says the disciples of Jesus slept while he prayed nearby (commemorated in the Basilica of the Agony). The site once held an olive press, and one can see remains of an ancient cistern, as well as traces of Byzantine mosaics. The stars painted on the ceiling of the cave date from the 12th century. A specific address is not available but it is well-known, ask anyone for directions.
