In the city of Tiberias, recounts the Traveler from Placentia, were hot, saltwater baths, though the seawater was fresh. At Capernaum he saw Peter's house, over which a basilica had been built. From Capernaum he passed by camps, villages, and cities to arrive at two springs, the Jor and the Dan. The two rivers that issued from them converged to form the River Jordan, which then entered the Sea of Galilee and passed through it, flowing out of it once again on its southern shore. Upon his return to the Sea of Galilee, the Traveler went to the place where the Jordan exited it. He crossed the river there and went to a city called Gader, where there was a hostel for the enjoyment of the public and hot springs called Termas Helias. The springs were frequented by lepers, who came there to be cured. In front of the water source was a large tub. When it filled up, the doors were closed and the patients sent inside with lamps and incense to sit in the tub for the night. Valley, The Holy Sepulcher In Jerusalem the Traveler admired the tomb of Jesus. He writes that it was carved of natural stone the same stone on which the Lord's body had been laid and that a copper lamp burned day and night at its head. Earth had been laid outside of the tomb and those entering were able to obtain a blessing from it. The stone that covered the tomb, which stands in front of the opening to the tomb, was the same color as the stone of the tomb, since it was hewn out of the rock of Golgotha. It was decorated with gold and precious gems and looked like a millstone. The tomb's ornamentation was unfathomable: bracelets, necklaces, rings, tiaras, twisted belts, sashes, imperial crowns of gold and precious stones, and an empress' jewels hung from iron chains. The tomb was designed as a kind of silver canopy, and an altar stood before it. It was eighty steps from the tomb to Golgotha, where one could ascend the steps that Jesus climbed to the Crucifixion. The Traveler adds that one could see the place Jesus was crucified, where the stain of blood was still visible on the rock. To the side of Golgotha was the altar of Abraham, where the patriarch almost sacrificed his son and where Melchizedek also performed --The Holy Sepulcher
On the Mount of Olives, the Traveler visited Bethany near the tomb of Lazarus and passed many monasteries, of both men and women. On the summit, at the place from which the Lord ascended to heaven, he saw many wonders and the cell in which Saint Pelagia hid and was buried. The Mount of Olives, he notes, was the site of the graves of Jacob, Cleopas, and many saints. From the mountain he descended to the valley of Gethsemane and the place where Jesus was handed over to the Romans. So that they might be blessed, the Traveler and his companions sat in the three seats where Jesus had once sat. In the same valley they saw the basilica named for Saint Mary (the Church of the Tomb of the Virgin), which people say was her home and from which her body ascended to heaven. This same valley was also called the Jehoshaphat Valley. From Gethsemane they ascended the many steps to the gate of Jerusalem. To its left was a grove of olive trees containing the fig tree on which Judas hanged himself. His rope was still there, surrounded by stones. The city gate abutted the ornate gate that was once the gate of the Temple; its threshold and floor still survived. As he entered Jerusalem, the Traveler knelt and kissed the holy ground. --The Mount of Olives and the Jehoshaphat Valley
