Jerusalem: Via Dolorosa, V

Jerusalem: Via Dolorosa, V

The Via Dolorosa (Latin for Way of Grief or Way of Suffering) is a street within the Old City of Jerusalem, held to be the path that Jesus walked, carrying his cross, on the way to his crucifixion.

It is today marked by nine Stations of the Cross, with the remaining five stations being inside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The route is a place of Christian pilgrimage.

The fifth station refers to the biblical episode in which Simon of Cyrene takes Jesus’ cross, and carries it for him.
