This is one of the famous churches, commemorating Christ’s vision of the destruction of Jerusalem, despite its development and prosperity, and where He cried, lamenting this fate of the city. This is a small, modern church, designed by Italian architect Parluchi in 1955, in the shape of a teardrop. The visitor should be careful exiting the church, where there are new archeological excavations. Walking down the Mount of Olives leads to the Russian Church of Mary Magdalene, with its classical, onion-shaped domes.
