First time

I wasn't aware of this and i had not visited it the first time that I was here 40 years ago. It is possible that it was not there.

Situated in Jewish Quarter, The Cardo is ruins from Roman times. You can see some columns and mural and then many souvenir shops.

It was fun walking along the ancient Cardo up to the mural which depicted the scene thousands of years ago. Be sure to take a picture of your travelers against the ancient mural.

There is not much to see except from a few Roman columns and a small, underground vaulted hall with a few old stones which belonged to an ancient wall. Very little interest, unless you want to shop for Judaica. .

Walking through the Old City of Jerusalem is an amazing experience. The Cardo is not a place to miss when you visit. It is a fascinating little place that reeks of ancient history and is quite beautiful.

During our excursion in Jewish quarter in old Jerusalem city we always going to see Cardo. This is the Roman style street with columns , which was discovered during archaeological research and digging. It is on the bottom level of the Jewish quarter and one of the most important places to visit for people who love history and architecture.

Beautiful remains of a road from the Roman-Byzantine period which was until today used as a throughfare for shopping. A beautiful painting there displays life as it was in the olden days.
