Owner description: The monastery in DC is the closest that some will get to visiting the Holy Land. The Monastery of Mount St. Sepulchre, designated a National Historic Site in 1991, has been a place of worship and pilgrimage for thousands of visitors since the church's dedication in 1899. Free tours are given daily of the catacombs, church, and gardens.

I wanted to take my partner to a beautiful garden while we were on vacation in DC. I am so glad that I found this place right here on Tripadvisor.

We had a car so we were able to drive here without much trouble. (Besides the general chaos associated with trying to drive in DC.) The gardens were immaculatly kept. And inside the church was breath taking.

We were there over Esater weekend so there were quite a few people about. Still, the place inspires hushed tones. It was a peaceful, perfect place. And the photos do not fully convey the beauty.
