Each quarter of the old city has its special significant locations, buildings and streets and the Christian 1/4 is around Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

Some great sites to see. Beware of the merchants selling poorly made products and a lot of the supposed Middle East product is Made in China! Pickpockets everywhere,be safe and know where your valuables are at all times.

The Christian quarter is full of shops selling Christian items and Jewish. All quarters sell items for all religions. Negotiate prices or you will get ripped off.
