Behind us, station number 11 of the way of the cross also name The Latin Calvary. The team of 360HolyPlaces™ filmed this place in Virtual Reality in 360° for you.
The convicts have left the city, into the open plains. down into the quarry they go, and the crowd is ecstatic. Thousands of people are in attendance to see the suffering of friends of others. Jesus of Nazareth and his convict friends were gathered down in the quarry. Stripping off their clothing, ridiculed by the people, they were brought here up on the top one by one. They pulled him all the way up, still wearing the crown of thorns, laid him on the cross, and pound the nails into his skin as they are marking him in. The cross was then lifted up and stuck in front of everybody to see on the other side of Calvary. Station 11 is under the patronage of the roman catholic Franciscan brothers in the name of the western world of Christianity. The altar itself is the most expensive religious artifact in holy land today. It was given to this place by the Medici family in Italy. Since the church of The Holy Sepulchre Church has suffered fire in the year 1808, most of the mosaic around was destroyed, except for one piece: right above, we have original mosaic from the crusader time, marking jesus as the emperor of the world.
