Every quarter has it's own feel and the Christian quarter contains the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, small shops and cafes. For Christian visitors, I recommend walking the Via Dolorosa and taking time to soak in the fact that you are walking where Jesus once walked.

This is one of the quarters and gives the visitor an understanding of the cultural difference in the special place. Different again from the other quarters. It adds to the cities richness.

I agree with user catlover333. The Roman glass jewelry in this shop is rare and authentic. I have bought quite a few of these pieces and they are really beautiful pieces and not like the ground composite items that other shops sell at much lower cost. They are also expensive - I spent over $2000 dollars on my small collection.... More

Beautiful, historical part of Jerusalem, one of four old Quarters of the walled city, where Via Dolorosa reaches the Church of Holy Sepulcher at Golgotha! This incredible area containing the places important for Christianity and loaded with history will likely charge you with religious emotions. The area is adorned by beautiful churches and monasteries. Numerous souvenir stores, nice cafes invite... More

This was my least favorite part of the walled city. Did not spend much time here. Seems like more endless souvenier shops and restauants

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.
