  • Lions Gate was built in the 16th century by the order of Sultan Suleiman the magnificent of the Ottoman Empire and were the only ones in the fortress wall on the eastern side. Got its name from bas-reliefs of two pairs of lions carved in stone on the front of each side of the gate. According to one version the gates with reliefs appeared after sleeping Suleiman. It said that, if he did not build a wall around the city, then one day a couple of Lions attack on him and the inhabitants of the city. Away from the Lions ' gate and street starts, which will lead us to the Via Dolorosa, the street the last path of Jesus.

  • שער האריות הוא משעריה היפים של ירושלים. התפרסם מאוד בזכות הכניסה דרך השער של הצנחנים במלחמת ששת הימים אל העיר העתיקה. ממליץ לכם לבדוק בשטח האם זה אריה או ברדלס ;-) 
  • Also called Lions Gate by two sculpture eraldicas that there are in its facade and San esteban, because it is believed that the first holy Christian was stoned to death in their vicinity.
