You cannot stay too much inside the tomb; there’s a monk who tell you to speed up!

The Church is the shelter to Christ's crucifixion and burial sites. It protects the Golgotha rock where Jesus was nailed to his cross, died and also the place where he was buried before resuscitating. It has a very spiritual meaning to Christians, and the Middle Eastern vibe of the decorum makes it all the more so special. However, the way the place is administrated (you can read about it in any guidebook) means it's almost dereclit in places. It can also be very crowded and queues to visit the Tomb of Jesus can strech over an hour. Do not hesitate to come back at different hours of the day as the light can change the atmosphere quite drastically.
