friendly store-owners

We only spent an hour here, but the store-owners were very friendly and the falafal was tasty. Much overlap with other quarters, but also obviously Christian.

The Christian quarter is a walk way through many little souvenier shops and little cafes with local food. Stations of the cross, quite slippery underfoot where many have trod before, beautiful none the less

The Christian quarter was by far the most sunlit, bright, spacey neighborhood vs. the other quarters. Amazing to have all the different quarters adjacent to each other - the Jewish, Armenian, and Muslim. Good to walk from one quarter to another and visiting the different stations snuggled within.

Full of beautiful ancient churches and good shops to buy religious merchandise. It was beautifully decorated before Christmas. Some of the churches are shut during lunch time in the winter so make sure you know the opening times.

As it was December ,it was interesting to see the Christmas decorations in this quarter. Also the only place in Jerusalem where one can have bacon and eggs and ham sandwiches ! Israel very tolerant of other religions.

Its nice to stroll around and see the sights of old Jerusalem. Narrow cobblestone alleys, or 'streets' as theyre called, with endless vendors of touristy souvenirs.

We actually though the Christian quarter would have some resemblence to Christianity! There is nothing in the Christian quarter that can easily identify it from the moslem and armenians. Filled with dirty laneways and vendors ready to rip you off with the majority of wares not price marked - beware!

More open than the Muslem quarter. Diverse opportunities to shop and eat in a more open to the sky atmosphere

What the picture here shows is the main-gate into the Christian Quarter. But the Christian Quarter Rd. is in fact a lovely little ally, first left if you come dow from the Jaffa Gate into the market. I visit there a lot, so never mind what month I put on the questionnaire, he he. The fourth shop on the left... More
