Via Dolorosa, the extended version


Three main groups of religious tours are available at Shalom Israel in all price classes.Click here for the 14 Stations of the Cross gallery.


 

Every Friday afternoon hundreds of Christians join in a procession through the Old City of Jerusalem, stopping at 14 Stations of the Cross as they identify with the suffering of Jesus on his way to crucifixion.

Their route is called the Via Dolorosa (Way of Sorrows). This is also the name of the principal street they follow, a narrow marketplace bustle with traders and shoppers, most likely similar to the scene on the first Good Friday.

Procession starts at time Jesus died
