Jewish Quarter, Jerusalem

4.6
#2 of 10 in Neighborhoods in Jerusalem
Walking through Jewish Quarter, the part of the Old City controlled by Jews, enables visitors to weave through ancient history and consider modern Jewish life. The neighborhood, built over centuries entirely out of beige Jerusalem stone, is maze-like. It contains four historic and monumental synagogues among many smaller houses of prayer and seminaries, colonnaded Roman ruins unearthed in the center of the quarter, and the entrances to the Western Wall and the ancient Jewish archaeological sites nearby. Try to wear shoes with a lot of traction: the streets are also made of Jerusalem stone, slippery from centuries of footsteps. Using our world travel planner, Jerusalem attractions like Jewish Quarter can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Very nice to go and walk - and people watch. That being said...wear skid resistant shoes. I felt like i was on a skating rink and nearly fell several times.  more »
  • The quarter is very different, with its ceramic stores, coffee shops and small eateries. Spent time under the trees in a square with in the Jew quarter.  more »
