Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is built on what Queen Helena believed to be the site of the crucifixion and it remains today a place of incredible spirituality.

The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is the holiest site in Jerusalem, and of all Christianity. Located within the Church is the Tomb of Christ, with steps leading up to Golgotha (Calvary) where Christ was crucified. The church was built around the tomb in 330AD by Emperor Constantine. Pilgrims can see the place where Jesus' body was laid, as well as a piece of the stone that was rolled away.
