Via Dolorosa

Relive the history of the Holy City

In 15 minutes, visitors experience more than 2000 years of history as episodes from the Gospels are brought to life and the transformation of the city of Jerusalem is retraced. Proceeding from the time of Herod and the condemnation and passion of Christ, to that of Hadrian, the first pilgrims to Jerusalem, Constantine, Omar, Godfrey de Bouillon, Suleiman the Magnificent, and up to today, this immersive section is indispensable for introducing the Way of the Cross and for better understanding the history of the Holy City!

Available in nine languages, this section is suitable for groups of pilgrims as well as for individual visitors. It is particularly appropriate for children, since the multimedia installation, employing of digital animation techniques, presents a dynamic narration sustained by an emotionally moving soundtrack.

An introduction to the way of the cross

Located at the beginning of the Via Dolorosa, the multimedia section is found at the convent of the Flagellation, just in the place which ancient tradition identifies as having been the Antonia Fortress and the Praetorium of Pilate. For this reason, pilgrims exit from this place to follow the Way of the Cross, leading up to Golgotha and the Holy Sepulchre.

A visitor can thus begin his travel on the Way of the Cross or his visit to Jerusalem in general by being immersed in an atmosphere composed of the lights, sounds, rumors, stories, and animations of Herod’s epoch, wherein the dramatic events of the Passion, the death and resurrection of Christ took place.
