The monastery was established in 1890 by the Trappist Order, and subsequently known as the Monastery of Silence.
The Latrun Monastery became famous for the good wine and olive oil it produces, which are available from a shop run by the monks.
In the monastery garden, there is a collection of archaeological finds from the area, one of them an inscription mentioning the Fifth Legion of Rome (Macedonia) that took part in the suppression of the great Jewish revolt in 69 C.E., and the Bar Kochba revolt in 132-135 CE.
