Via Dolorosa - Review

Via Dolorosa (Way of the Cross) of the ‘Path of Sorrow’ was where Jesus walked through to the Crucifixion. Following the same path through the old part of Jerusalem is nothing short of an out of body experience.

The whole route consists of 14 stations which start from the place where Jesus was condemned by Pilate and end to the ‘Calvary’ where he was crucified.

The station includes the place where Jesus met Mary, where Simon took up the cross and where Jesus spoke to the women of Jerusalem. The final station where Jesus was buried endsthe walk.

Via Dolorosa, Jerusalem Reviews

  • Walking through history is an experience on it's own.

  • Good if you like this kind of thing and/or are into religious history etc

  • Worth to walk along, truely time travel.The Via Dolorosa (Latin: "Way of Grief," "Way of Sorrow," "Way of Suffering" or simply "Painful Way"; Hebrew: ויה דולורוזה; Arabic: طريق الآلام‎) is a street within the Old City of Jerusalem, believed to be the path that Jesus walked on the way to his crucifixion. The winding route from the Antonia Fortress west to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre—a distance of about 600 metres (2,000 feet)—is a celebrated place of Christian pilgrimage. The current route has been established since the 18th century, replacing various earlier versions. It is today marked by nine Stations of the Cross; there have been fourteen stations since the late 15th century, with the remaining five stations being inside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

  • Amazing visit to jerusalem, watching people preparing for Easter.

  • You don’t have to be religious to feel how wonderfully spiritual and intense this place is!
