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!

Enter through the New Gate and it will not be as crowded. The shops are not as busy here since the tram does not stop here. If you are Catholic there is a shop run by a dear man here. He has the picture of the Pope on his window. Many of the shop owners are not Christian so you... More

To me this is a shopping district first and foremost. If you are christian you may get something more out of it but if like me you're not you see lots of shops selling mainly tacky souvenirs and some impressive churches as well.

Visiting the Christian Quarter is full of surprises. It's almost like walking back in time with its tapestry of sights, sounds and smells. It's hard to believe that it is here that Christ spent his last moments before His death, A visit to a few souvenir shops proved interesting and somewhat worthwhile. It's important to be prepared to haggle -... More
