Via dolorosa

 

At the original street level, in the interior of the Church of the Sisters of Zion, is the pavement of one of the courtyards in the Antonia fortress (built under the rule of Mark Antony), the lithostrotos of the gospel, bearing scratches made on it by Roman soldiers, playing the game basileus. This may have been the pavement on which Jesus stood before Pilate, when he was judged, mocked and crowned with thorns.
