Go in the late afternoon when the Jerusalem air, light, and weather are so perfect. Beautiful, relaxing atmosphere and a great view from the small plaza/observatory alongside the windmill.

This was the first neighborhood built outside the walls of Jerusalem. It overlooks the old city and in all it's a small neighborhood full of small streets with lovely houses and lots of flowers blooming. There is also a windmill built in 1848 that was in use for 20 years and now is a tourist attraction. It's a cultural center... More

I haven't been here for 15 years and it was exciting to see how well this area is preserved. The architecture is stunning and so are some of the views. Worth a walk through the area

Take a walk around the wind mill of Montefiori and immagine nothing else around except this long new building ready with studios but no one ready to live here outside the walls of the old city and maybe you feel like living at the end of the 19th century:)

The first Jewish neighborhood built outside toe Old walled city, when everyone was very poor. Today you would never know that. Many artists have settled there.

Not much to say about this as a "destination" or "attraction" but I'm glad we had extra time to just take a walk through this area.

The guest house is simply amazing: it faces the Old City, so the view is fantastic. The inside of the guest house is full of history. The staff is not very friendly. The area around the hotel is stunning. It is a great location for those wishing to go to the Old City, but it is great for transportation.
