  • This door is pierced for 2000 years in the northern part of the wall of the old city. It connects the Via dolorosa to the Kidron Valley and the Mount of olives, near the place where saint Etienne was massacred. Rebuilt with the walls by Soliman in the 16th century, the door is decorated with a bas-relief representing two lions (leopards), emblem of Baybars (sultan of the 13th c.) which has been reused here.

  • This gate, which also is known as Lion's Gate, is at one end of the Via Dolorosa. Is not too large or busy, I crossed to the Mount of olives, a few hundred meters from there. Accesses the Muslim sector of the old town.

  • Unless you're some kind of gate fanatic, there's not much to see. There's lion decorations on the walls, but otherwise nondescript. Overrated  more »
