This church isn’t known for its stained glass windows, nor for its benches. It’s famous because of its neighbour – a 19th century precise replica of the original Via Dolorosa. No, they didn’t copy the buildings, just the distance and the actual slope. To make the glory of the Lord shine brighter, they didn’t just use the natural topography of the area. Instead, they dug a huge ravine – it took them 15 years, and it’s estimated that 70 000 men took part in the digging.
But, of course, I didn’t take the picture of the Polish Via Dolorosa. The light wasn’t good enough.
