Basilica of the Agony

Jerusalem Highlight Basilica of the Agony

This 20th century Roman Catholic church, also known as the Church of All Nations, also known as the Church of the Agony, is located on Mount of Olives. It contains a grotto with an outcrop of stone known as the Rock of Agony, where it is believed that Christ anguished in his final hours before he was crucified. Personally I loved the ceiling the most, it shows the national symbols of 12 donors
