Another stop that changed many of us. We stopped and it was very hectic with the bus, but we went down to where Jesus was kept and prayed a psalm all together. I always knew there was some lost time in all the accounts and...More

If you can make time to visit this Church, you'll be pleasantly surprised. It's not one of the main pilgrimage sites but it's worthwhile to view. The art is beautiful and the jail cell is also very interesting to see and contemplate how Christ must...More

The Pit where Jesus awaited his sentence is the place that most impacted me of the entire pilgrimage to the Holy Land. For some reason, I had never pictured that particular site, and it broke me, completely.

As with so many of the sites in Jerusalem, this church was built over the site of the high priest's house and adjacent to the holy steps on which Jesus walked en route to the Temple mount. While the location itself is beautiful, it is...More

The church is close to Zion Gate so you must go out of the old town to get there. It is also close to other attractions like Davids Tomb.

The mosaics, alone, are worth the visit! There are so many and you could spend quite a while looking at the stunning intracies of each one.

Our tour group enjoyed spending time at this site. It is a quiet area which can be an area for reflection and meditation.

This spot is not Caiaphas' house, not where Jesus was imprisoned. All experts agree on this. But it is still interesting, as it commemorates the spot and experience. It is beautifully decorated with sculptures, gardens and paintings. Go see it. Nice gift shop too.

A pretty church just outside the Old City of Jerusalem supposedly built on the site of Caiaphas's Palace. Beneath the church are caves where it is said Jesus was imprisoned following his arrest at the Garden Of Gethsemane and outside the location of where Peter...More

Jesus foretold that Peter 'the Rock on whom I will build my Church' would deny him thrice before cock-crow, that is, dawn. This striking Roman Catholic church derives its name from the Roman word for 'cock-crow' and is a mark of Peter's repentance for betraying...More
