History speaks for itself and the faith of everyone who is there is amazing beautiful.. The art in the building is priceless.

Very impressing

No doubt this Church is probably the most impressing place for the Christians pilgrims going to Jerusalem. That is quite visible by their faith demonstrations in the most significant sites of the temple. Enjoy!

This church is the center of Christian faith, it’s built on the location where Jesus was crucified, buried and resurrected. It is not one church it’s many built on top of one and other, you arrive at the entry in a side, there is a small plaza, it’s hard to imagine this is the entry to this place that holds so much history. It is always crowded and there is lines to see the most holy locations. At the entrance you will see the the stone of Anointing, it’s believed Jesus body was prepared here for burial, you can kneel, pray and touch the stone. Close to the entrance you can also visit the place where the cross was located you have to climb a steep staircase in line to access a small Greek/Christian chapel, the line allows one by one to stop kneel, bow, and pray. You continue exploring and make sure you visit the space directly under the Calvary is the Chapel of Adam. You can continue walking and visiting many other chapels, you can admire the different architectural styles, arches and columns holding arches that allow the visualization of the complex construction during different centuries and cultures. In a rotunda Under a dome there is a small chapel that encloses the Holy sepulcher, there is always a long and slow line to visit the chapel. The spaces have little light, the areas are dim. It is a very special experience for Christians it’s meaning and history makes this visit a pilgrimage to the most holy of locations. Highly recommended for all.
