Unfortunately the Armenian Tavern was closed for the several days we were there (Seasonal according to a sign in the window), but the Quarter was nice and peaceful. Visit the St James Cathedral as it was quite nice, and while we were there the choir of Armenian monks were signing some very beautiful and haunting hymns and chants. This is... More

If you're looking for an authentic souk experience but don't want to walk all over the Old City, this is a good and friendly place to start. You'll find everything from tacky souvenirs to shoes, rugs and spices and pretty much everything in-between. Hawkers are shameless and you have to be hard-nosed about haggling or you will be royally ripped... More

So clean the floors sparkle which is the only place besides the Holy Sepulchre and Christian Quarter. Because the crowds were so light, we were able to stroll several times throughout the four Quarters and see folks going about their daily business of preparing their foods, setting up shop, cleaning their homes and going to Mass or service. Many of... More

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
