Jesus takes up the Cross.

----------------------------------------------------------

The Catholic Franciscan chapel of the "Condemnation and Imposition of the Cross", according to tradition, this was where Jesus took up his cross after being sentenced. It is based on the finding of large Roman pavement stones that may have been part of Pilate's judgment seat for the condemnation of Jesus, and the place where Jesus took up his cross after being sentenced.

 

The original church was built during the Byzantine era. It was converted into a mosque before being restored to a Catholic church in 1904.
