Armenian Quarter, Jerusalem

(4.3/5 based on 120+ 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. Using our world travel planner, Jerusalem attractions like Armenian Quarter can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • One of the keys to the time get to know the religious capital of the world is to go to each of the quarters of the old city of Jerusalem: the Armenian quarter is characterized for being glued to the Jewish quarter by the door of the Moroccans and the Zion gate. I recommend visiting it and lose yourself in its streets.

  • If you enter through the gate of Zion, be immediately in the heart of this neighborhood. You will immediately notice that it is quiet, without the clamor of the Christian and Muslim quarters all of them full of shops with items for sale to tourists. We want to draw the attention of their peculiar clothes and that when van walking from one place to another, are continuously balancing your firebugs. It is worth seeing the Church of St James. We carry to those times.

  • A lovely part of the Christian quarter; It is pleasant, in addition to the Church of St James, for the various shops and restaurants Armenians who are scattered along the main road.
