The church of Dominus Flevit (“The master cried”) in Jerusalem is a beautiful Catholic-Franciscan church, that had been built on the ruins of a Byzantine church, in 1955; to commemorate Jesus’ crying when he looked at Jerusalem and realized that the city is about to lose itself to hatred, self-destruction and violence.

The church is situated on the Mount of Olives, overlooking a marvelous view of Jerusalem.
In addition, a unique cemetery of the first century had been excavated, in the church’s compound.
The shape of the church had deliberately been designed at the shape of tear; to emphasize its meaning.

The church had been designed by the Italian Architect, Antonio Berlucci.
The church is accessible to the handicapped and entrance is free of charge.
