  • Retrace the steps that Christ took carrying the cross on the way to His crucifiction. Well placed panels along the way depicting the various stations of the walk. A moving experience 
  • this is Brittany's mother, this song is so beautiful, I have been telling My LORD how I want his presence in my life more than anything else in the world, yesterday I took off from work to spend a day just with my LORD no one else. I played this song all afternoon I was so happy, I was singing it all day and I made copies for all my friends at work. JESUS died for me and you so we may have eternal life, what a GOD there is no one else like him, without him I have no life, I want the whole world to experience this amazing love. I love him because he first loved me. to GOD be the GLORY. amen.
  • What an incredible journey! There are 14 stations along the Way of Sorrow and it was quite an experience to visit all of them. You will need a guide if you want to understand what you are seeing.
  • Via Dolorosa is most important to Christian. From the Lion's gate to Church of the Holy Sepulchre, it has nice view and different current setup such as shops, etc.
  • This maybe something you need a guide or some leaflet to help explain. I didn't have either and as far I could see it was just a street. There was 1 or 2 churches but that's it. Maybe you need to christian as well but I was very underwhelmed
  • For a non-Catholic this information gives me a surreal feeling, almost as if l was there when they crucified my Lord. Peace be unto you
