Neighborhood: East Jerusalem

Luke 19:41-44 records that Jesus looked over the city of Jerusalem and wept for its future destruction. The chapel, designed by Italian architect Antonio Barlucci, was built in 1955. During construction, archaeological remains from the Canaanite period, and a lovely Byzantine chapel were discovered, along with tombs from the Second Temple and Late Roman periods. The Byzantine mosaic floor with its intersecting circles, flowers, fruit, leaves, and fish, was incorporated in the building. Barlucci's arched window provides one of the most famous views of Jerusalem. To get to Dominus Flevit, walk up the Mount of Olives along the paved road immediately behind the Basilica of the Agony.
