There are no words to express my impression about that place. The most important church to visit if you are Christian as well as interesting place to visit as a tourist. Only thing is that can be very crowded and full of touristic groups

This is a really amazing place. The church is divided into many parts, reflecting different Christian denominations. There are many holy sites including Jesus's tomb, Golgotha, and the center of the world in the Greek Orthodox religion.

Impressive. Bit a little bit chaotic and unclear where to find everything. Read the information before you go.
