My spouse and I walked through this quarter on an organized non-religious 30-person group tour from the US with our tour leader. While I understand that much was demolished during fighting in 1948, and I applaud the rebuilding effort to create something new and beautiful, this reconstructed residential area is basically sterile; the stones of the houses and buildings appear...

Must see. Still looks like it did hundreds of years ago. Cobblestone streets, narrow walks and alleys
