This seems to be the most quiet neighbourhood of the Old City, but wandering around its' alleys is quite nice and the place is charming. It is, however, a pity that the Cathedral was close for works...sniff!

It is less crowded than the other quarters. Not the most important, but worth a visit! Nice shops with ceramics.

Each area in Jerusalem represents a different faith, or culture. Each one is worth visiting. It's like visiting several countries in one stop.

The Armenian Quarter is small but has a great Armenian Restaurant and a few shops with hand made and hand painted ceramics. The Armenian people have had a difficult history that has made them a strong and tough people.

This Quarter of the walled city is absolutely spotlessly and proudly maintained. Great places to eat, interesting shopping also.

The Armenian Quarter was probably the quarter where the least was going on, at least when we were there. That's not to say you should not visit, but there are not as many big sights as the other quarters.

Visiting the Armenian Quarter gave me insight into the Christian history of my ancestors. St James Cathedral is splendid with heavy dense carpets flapping at the doors. The whole place is deeply reverential and appropriately dark. Maps of the execution of the Armenian Genocide are everywhere in the streets.

Walk in the alleys, enjoy the old houses, the people rushing each one to his work or place of pray. Jews, Armenians, Christians and Muslims, all together and yet separated. Smell the food from the houses, but a souvenir and go for some food in one of the Armenian restaurants there. Don't forget the Armenian pottery in the local workshops.
