It was meaningful to walk along the route that Jesus would have traveled with the cross on his way to Golgotha. The stations of the cross are well marked.

The Via Dolorosa (and Stations of the Cross) is fascinating - for Christians, in particular, and anyone interested in history. The walk can get busy, so best to go early before the crowds arrive. The stations are marked and some have written commentary explaining what...More

I loved having been able to do the Way of the Cross, but the stores where there and they were open. A lot of people were doing business as usual. I know they are not Christians, but it just didn't feel right to me.

You do not have to be a Christian to have an appreciation of this walk. I am so glad I went. It was one of my most inspiring travel experiences.

I'm not religious but as much as know, that Jesus sent away the merchants from the church. It seems to me with very little result, the whole Via DOlorosa is fullwith shops. Howeer it is an interesting walk to have different architectural points.
