The quarter itself is mostly a closed compound, but St James Armenian Cathedral - open briefly every day for liturgy - is definitely worth a visit! Precious reminder of the rich Christian heritage of the Armenian church.

A really recommend visit these three quarters: Christian, Armenian, Muslim. Is nice because you can remark the differences. For me the Armenian quarter was the less welcome.

The quarters of the old city each bring a different flavor, attractions and many merchants. To get an understanding of the dynamics and complexities of the old city it is good to walk through all four quarters. Each has is special sites worth seeing. As fro Merchants, it is generally priced high as one would expect in a major tourist... More

Probably the less significant of the four quarters. Nothing much I can say about this area but its quite dirty and of lower significance than the other three.

It's a good place to eat on Passover, when most restaurants are closed. Also note that you can get delicious coffee with cardamon in any armenian restaurant.

Walked thru Armenian Quarter twice - once on our way from Jaffa Gate to Zion, during daytime; then while returning from Western Wall on Shabbat night (even more charming in the dark, relaxed and absolutely safe). It is as unique and inimitable as the other three Old City quarters, so don't pretend you have visited the Old City if you... More

Occupying the SW corner of the Old City, in an area called Mt Zion, it is bordered on the north by the Christian... More

Even if this isn't one of your scheduled stops, try to make some time. Besides the few special shops (e.g. Sandrouni, and Vic's ceramic tiles), the Armenian Cathedral of St. James is truly a unique sight. Check to make sure, though, it is only open to the public for 1/2 hour each day. It contains many beautiful and unique pieces... More

Noisy and narrow place as most of the old city. Easy to lose directions! Don't walk there late in the evening.
