Armenian Quarter, Jerusalem

(150+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Those who visit the Holy City will have heard of the 3 other quarters :Christian, Jewish and Muslim.These 3 hold holy sites of the 3 faiths. So the Armenian Quarter may seem less attractive to visit. ...  more »
  • Any visit to the old city while in Jerusalem should include all four quarters of the city. The Armenian quarter is the sleepiest and most secluded but worth a walk through  more »
  • Jerusalem has a lot of things to see and the Armenian Quarter really worth the walk. Be patient and enjoy the walk... Bring some water as the heat is terrible!.  more »
