The Stations of the Cross

The Stations of the Cross provide an interactive scavenger hunt of one of the most tragic and widely known events in Christianity: Christ’s journey to his crucifixion. The route is compact and engaging; tourists can stop at one of the many food stalls along the route (one of Jerusalem’s best hummus spots is next to the 5th station), and each station contains an artistic depiction of each chapter of Christ’s final journey. From the first, when Jesus is condemned to death, to the last, where is body is laid in his tomb, the stations provide an easy-to-grasp, visual depiction of the well-known tale. Keep in mind, most of the religious sites are theoretical; while station four marks the place Jesus met his mother, the stations were in installed to give the story a physical home, and are not exact representations. Pilgrims often walk the stations during Lent, but tourists navigate the course all year.
