Armenian Quarter, Jerusalem

4.2
#5 of 10 in Neighborhoods in Jerusalem
Neighborhood Tourist Spot
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.

  • The armenian quarter is very peaceful, the guide even said it brings some balance to the old city, and I think that is true. There are some churchs and monasteries to visit there, I didnt many shops, ...  more »
  • The Cardo street separates the quarters. All are worth taking time in. Armenians were the first christians and so have much to tell us about history of christianity.  more »
  • Highly recommend as a part of the overall Old Jerusalem tours - revitalized with a mural, this ancient marketplace sets the stage for the rest of the history of the area.  more »

Where to stay in Jerusalem

Although it lacks a big selection of mid-range options, Jerusalem provides plenty of choices in the top-end hotel category. The Old City contains the bulk of Jerusalem's small hotels, inexpensive hostels, and religious hospices, all of which appeal to budget-conscious travelers. West Jerusalem offers additional options in the form of guesthouses and bigger hotels, some of which boast five-star ratings. If you just need a bed, consider a youth hostel, where you can choose between private and common rooms with Wi-Fi included.
