The Via Dolorosa (Way of Grief) is a processional route in the Old City of Jerusalem, believed to be the path that Jesus walked on the way to the Crucifixion. The winding route from the Antonia Fortress west to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre—a distance of about 2,000 feet—is a celebrated place of Christian pilgrimage. The current route has been established since the 18th century, replacing various earlier versions. It is today marked by nine Stations of the Cross; there have been fourteen stations since the late 15th century, with the remaining five stations being inside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
