Jerusalem and Judean Hills
  • For many Christian pilgrims to Jerusalem, the most important and meaningful thing they will do while in the city is walk the Via Dolorosa, the route that Jesus took between his condemnation by Pilate and his crucifixion and burial. The Via Dolorosa pilgrimage is followed by Christians of many denominations, but especially Catholics and Orthodox. The Via Dolorosa incorporates the 14 Stations of the Cross, each commemorating the events of the day of the crucifixion. The last Stations of the Cross are inside the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.
