Pinsteps. Seventh station of the Way of the Cross, Via Dolorosa seventh station, Old City of Jerusalem

At this point, Jesus addressed the crying women with the words: Don't cry for me, but yourself. For if they do this with a living tree, then what will happen to the dead. In these words, Jesus reflected the difference between the real and the lost people of Israel. For the Christian tradition, these words are of great importance as affirming the Christian faith. At the time of Jesus, approximately in this place were the city walls. So Jesus was led outside the city, continuing to Golgotha, a lonely rock outside Jerusalem.

Old City of Jerusalem from Jaffa Gate to Ethiopian Village

The trip combines the famous and hidden places of Old Jerusalem. Traditionally, we start at the Jaffa Gate, but soon we will enter a quiet street of the Maronite Church. Further, we will visit the little-known Syrian church of St. Mark, built on Mark's house where the Last Supper of Jesus and his disciples took place. Next, we will pass through the Jewish quarter with its famous Cardo Street, Madaba Map and two synagogues - Hurva and Tipheret. We will also visit the Institute of the Temple, which tells in great detail about objects in the Jerusalem Temple. Next, the synagogue at the Western Wall will show us the rare pillars of the ancient bridge that were the entrance portal to the Temple Mount. Further, we will walk through the Muslim quarter and talk about the city's water supply system and its open street fountains - sibyls. Finally, after visiting the fifth, sixth and seventh stops of the Via Dolorosa, we will complete our trip in the Ethiopian village on the roof of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher.
