Interesting to see the history of this Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem

Walking thru the Armenian Quarter you get the feel of the time the Turks ruled Jerusalem. Several Churches and Synagouges still exist. The vendors are friendly and the food... read more

This is the least touristy quarter with many buildings closed off to visitors. However, there are a few interesting attractions and things to see/do for those wanting to explore the area.

The Armenian quarter is probably the smallest among the Old City quarters, and still closed to visitors most of the time. Visitors are not allowed to roam free in this quarter, only to visit St. John's chapel at certain hours, so it is best to arrive with a group of a guided tour, where you get to see some of... More

Most of the neighborhood is owned by the Armenian Patriarchate. The self-contained community revolves around St. James Church and Monastery.

From the rooftop of our hotel, the New Imperial, we could see school children inside the Armenian Quarter dancing and playing instruments. Delightful!

Much history surrounds this area. We ate while visiting the area. The food was quite good. As with most of the area, there is a lot of walking.

A big contrast with the neighbouring Jewish quarter, the Arminian Quarter of the ol city of Jerusalem is very colorful and alive - touristically much more pleasing. We loved the palettes of smells, colours and sounds in the narrow alleyways.

I've been to Armenia several times and so naturally headed off to the Armenia Quarter in the Old City of Jerusalem! I was delighted with the solitude compared with the wild & noisy Christian and Muslim Quarters. I discovered quiet Alleyways such as Ararat Street,, together with beautiful Churches, Ceramic Shops & the Armenian Monastery. The quarter is compact yet... More
