As we toured the old city of Jerusalem we walked through the Armenian Quarter and a church/convent there. I was surprised at the size of the Armenian section of the city and how quiet this area was in comparison to the quarters.

Twenty years ago I began my wedding in the Armenian Quarters. We stayed at their hostel (hotel). We were some 60 people. So, revisiting the Armenian Quarter was a moving experience. There are some changes - there is a restaurant there, just on the corner...More

Go in thru the Jaffa gate and look left for the tourist office. Same gate for access to the Rampart Walk and Tower of David to your right. Churches, hospices, architecture, shops.
