When Sharon leaves Matt where he is supposed to stay in Jerusalem, we can see a sign on the wall that reads "Couvent Dominican SAINT-ETIENNE 1884" (i.e. St Stephen's Dominican Convent, 1884). Actually, the brown metallic gate that we can see opens to the Franciscan Convent of Dominus Flevit (cf. the small sign on the right at the end of the shot). There is a Dominican Convent in Jerusalem called Saint-Etienne but close to Damascus Gate and not on the Mount of Olives, as shown in the movie.
