Via Dolorosa Street

Via Dolorosa Street

Any Christian pilgrim dreams of walking the same path that Jesus Christ took to his crucifixion and death. The Via Dolorosa or the Way of Sorrows is a route in the Old City of Jerusalem that runs from the Antonia Fortress west to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

This 600-meter walk has always been close to the heart of pilgrims because of the significant role it played towards the end of Jesus’ life. The route was established in the 18th century and is now marked by nine Stations of the Cross that pilgrims can stop by during their walk. The remaining five stations are located in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

A weekly procession is held every 3:00 PM on Fridays, which is the same time the original way to the cross took place centuries ago. The walk that begins at the Pilgrims’ Reception Center is led by Franciscans and offers a solemn atmosphere for contemplation and prayer. The Via Dolorosa attracts the most visitors during Holy Week when pilgrims follow the route to the crucifixion as their own sacrifice.
