The Church of the Holy Sepulchre contains the 2 holy sites of Christianity - the ‘Calvary’ where Jesus was crucified and the empty tomb where he was buried and believed to have resurrected.

The entrance of the church is where you will find the Anointing Stone where Jesus was laid down to be prepared for his burial. Visitors rub oil on the stone and kiss it as a mark of respect.
