Gethshemane from GAT+SHEMANIM, means (Olive) "Oil Press". It is the name of a natural grotto next to the "Tomb of Mary" and her Assumption. Jesus often visited the grotto and it was here that He was betrayed and arrested. In time, however, the entire area at the foot of the Mt. of Olives was called GETHSEMANE.
The Garden of Olives is located above and to the right of the Grotto of Gethsemane ( to the left of the Basillica, facing the facade ) and enclosed by a fence. Here there are eight olive trees held by tradition to be the silent witnesses of Jesus´ prayer and suffering the evening before His crucifixion.
