Welcome! Is there a particular reason that the location matters to you that we could also help you with? – wax eagle Jul 13 '13 at 20:30

The soldiers mocked Him in the hall called the Praetorium (Matthew 15:16). The Jewish leaders spit on Him in the palace of the High Priest (Matthew 14:65) and also at the cross (Matthew 15:31).
