This complex, where Armenians have apartments and homes, is the... More

This quarter is safe, if not how do you explain that Jewish people use it at any time for transit? There are few stores that will attract you, fine art to be fair. I was attracted by the signs remembering the Armenian Genocide: Remember and Demand.

Having traversed each of the quarters of the "old city", I commend the people of this quarter for keeping it so clean and attractive while living among an amazing number of feet that walk its breath every day. We walk, and look, and comment, most without remembering that these alley-ways contain the actual homes of families that have called the... More

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!
