  • This 1857 mill was used to grind the grain until 1891. It was restored a few years ago and recalls the memory of the English philanthropist Moïse Montefiore. It dominates the very nice and very chic Jewish quarter of Yemin Moshe, with its small pedestrian streets lined with charming houses with gardens covered with flowers. It is very pleasant to walk on foot in this area.

  • Lots of steps to arrive at windmill but the photo opportunity is well worth it. Great views at the top.  more »
  • Very nice windmill (no entrance) in the Yemin Moshe Neighborhood. Built by Sir Moshe Mantifury as a work place in the 1860s for Jews who were willing to live outside the "safe" walls of Ancient Jerusa...  more »
  • One of the more prominent landmarks in the capital, the windmill is visible from multiple directions and audio information stations nearby offer a brief history lesson that puts the windmill into context. There is also a magnificent view of both the Old City and the Judean hills. A permanent exhibit showcases a reproduction of Montefiore's chariot.
