4.4/5 based on 110 reviews on the web
Stroll through cobblestone alleys of Armenian Quarter, passing some of the oldest chapels in the city. Thought by some to be the site of the Biblical Mount Zion, the peaceful, intriguing neighborhood features a gate and a street of the same name. See the chapel where, according to legend, St. Peter took refuge after the prison break, and the cathedral where St. James the Great lost his head upon orders of the historical King Herod. Visit the cemetery near the convent and the museum to learn more about the Armenian genocide.
