The Eighth Station - where Jesus met the Women of Jerusalem.
A carved Cross marks the spot of the Eight Station across the market street and up the steps of Aqabat al-Khanqah, opposite the Souvenir Bazaar. A stone embedded in the wall of the Greek, Monastery of Saint Haralambos has a Latin Cross and the Greek words "Jesus-Christ conquers."

The site of the Eighth Station has been recorded at this spot since the middle of the 19th century when the Franciscans moved the commemoration site to beyond the "Judgement Gate."
