The Church of St. Anne is a Romanesque 12th century Crusader church.  It was built between 1131 and 1138 on the traditional site of the birthplace of Anne, the mother of Mary.  It replaced an earlier Byzantine church.  Saladin turned the church into a Muslim theological school in 1192.  The abandoned building fell into ruin until the Ottomans donated it to France in 1856.  The church is next to the Bethesda Pool.  Additionally, there are ruins of a Roman temple to Apollo, the god of medicine and the remains of a Byzantine church built over the temple.  St. Anne's Church is located in the Muslim Quarter, near the Lion's Gate.  It is noted for its acoustics.
