Essential Destination to Christian Pilgrimage
Dec 2019
The Christian Quarter is where the Via Dolorosa terminates, at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Should you wish to walk the entire Via Dolorosa, begin your journey in the Muslim Quarter. There is much to see and experience from within the busy Christian Quarter and is an essential destination in any Christian pilgrimage to the Holy Land.

The quarter around Holy Sepulchre
Apr 2020
This is the highlight of our 2-week pilgrimage in Holy Land - visiting the Tomb of Christ inside the Holy Sepulchre Church and carrying the Cross by Via Dolorosa across various Stations. All these happening in the Christian Quarter, one of the 4 traditional quarters in the Old City of Jerusalem.

This is definitely an area to visit. Each of the the three main religions have distinct areas and each have a lot to offer the tourist.

Ground Zero for Christians
Jan 2020
In addition to the Jewish, Muslim, and Armenian Quarters, the Christian Quarter is one of the four traditional quarters of the Old City of Jerusalem. Ground zero for Christians is the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Christianity’s most important pilgrimage destination. I’m so glad we visited the Holy Land in January, an off-season month. Our guide shared stories of 3-4 hour long lines to enter Christ’s Tomb and to touch the Rock of Calvary in the busy months. Not only was it less crowded, we also enjoyed seeing the Holy Land decorated for Christmas!

Great shopping
Feb 2020
We always come here for shopping when in Jerusalem. We find the pricing to be better than most other stops on our tour. My husband loves the haggling part and I love the cheap finds.

A fascinating place to stay
Nov 2019
We stayed in the Christian Quarter when we were in Jerusalem; it's an interesting place to stay, with many intriguing features. Jerusalem is usually peaceful, the residents know that disturbances scare away the faithful who come to worship in this, the holiest city on earth. Jerusalem has four Quarters -- Christian, Armenian, Jewish and Muslim.

Christian Quarter Studio II
Jan 2020
Wow! I found this place online and could not believe my good luck. This is a jewel box of a studio room in the heart of Jerusalem's Christian quarter, just a block of so from the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. It's absolutely lovely: recently renovated, with a tiny but ultra modern bathroom, a small kitchenette with coffee and tea, and a sleeping platform, all in an ancient building. There is the kind of attention to detail that denotes the very best places--an electrical adapter for us foreigners, for example, and a listing of sights and eating places nearby. An exceptional place to explore the Holy City.. . and at a very reasonable price for the quality of the place!

Interesting sites to see
Jan 2020 • Solo
In the Christian Quarters there’s plenty to see and a Saturday is the perfect time to see them. Church of John the Baptist and many more. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre. It is a sacred site for Christians as it is believed to be the site of the crucifixion, burial and resurrection of Jesus. The church was built during the 4th century by the Emperor Constantine at the site. Today it is shared by different religions. The architecture here is simply beautiful with its marble, high ceilings and beautiful artwork. At the entrance is the Stone of Unction, marking the spot where Christ’s body was prepared for burial. The tomb is enclosed by a shrine called the Aedicule. You can line up and enter for prayer.
Be sure to get there super early if you want to go in the tomb, for lines get very long. Admission is free
