View looking at the altar in the interior of the Roman Catholic chapel that commemorates the site where Simon of Cyrene  was compelled to carry the cross of Jesus.  This event is only mentioned in Mark's gospel (Mark 15:21).

Cyrene was a large city in North Africa—modern Libya.  He was probably in Jerusalem for the Passover celebration.
