This is a great area to stroll in the old quarters. It has less people and less shops and it is not frequented and commercial as the other parts. There are historic churches dear to christianity (roman, Armenian Greek, etc). The streets have shops but not as many as the arab or jewish quarters and it is far less touristic.... More

Do not dawdle unless you expect to be stopped by shop keepers, sometimes there are more aggressive in this area.

Love all the churches in this quarter of Jerusalem.The Christians here are wonderful .. We were fortunate to even eat lunch one day in a Christian home in the Christian quarter. All believers should walk through this area!

There are the Jewish, Christian and moslim quartrrs in Jerusalem but there are no distinct segragations which we found such a relief. Here you obviously come across just Christan churches, Coptic, Catholic, orthodox and they are all truly beautiful and peaceful and very relaxing and reverent. The significance of the quarter draws you. But the sellers are from all denominations... More

You will always have a wonderful excursion through the Christian Quarter. Filled with so much history and religious institutions, each turn has its own story to tell, each church, or temple or abbey will always have some interesting tale of how they fit into the Old City zeitgeist. Take time to visit some of these religious institutions and find yourself... More

This is the part of Old Jerusalem that reflects the Christian history of Jerusalem. A multi cultural city.

The Christian quarter is pretty much like the Jewish and Arab quarters. Each area seems to be semi secluded with their own traditions, historical monuments and foods. The Christian quarter is the most accessible with very few restrictions and quirks.

Walking through this part of Jerusalem is like stepping back in time. The only difference is the wares the people are selling. Still, it is easy to feel yourself drifting back through the history of these walls and feeling a part of it!
