To many Catholics the Holy Sepulchre is the Holy Grail but I am not Catholic and do not see it in the same light. I did find the church beautiful with its amazing mosaic tiles and fresco ceilings, that alone makes the visit well worth...More

Followed the Via Dolorosa to this site, one of the most holy for Christians. It was interesting to see how the different sects of the Catholic Church had responsibility for specific areas within the church. Although crowded, it's well worth the time to walk through...More

sorry do not know. did see some certificates for sale in nearby shops. My impression of the church itself is one of near-chaos; cannot remember office or shop.

Church of Holy Sepulchre is a unique place-plan on spending an hour there-get there early if you want to see where Jesus was buried and then rose again-lines can be long but manageable -your visit will change your life!
