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

You'll also find a few good restaurants in the Armenian Quarter, which is a short walk from Jaffa Gate. There's not much to see. But the path leads to The Cardo and the ancient ruins of Jerusalem. So take the stroll!

The streets are less of the hustle and bustle after visiting the Market and the western wall.. history all around and a pleasant stroll.

Armenia was the first country to adopt Christianity even before Constantine's Rome and it has its ancient constant presence in Jerusalem. Armenian Quarter is quiet, has its own flavor and atmosphere. We entered it through Zion Gate and explored along Armenian Patriarchate Road and David street. The Quarter centers around the religious structures. It is a fascinating area to explore.... More

We had heard someone say, while we were looking at some Armenian pottery in the Jewish Quarter, "Go to the Armenian Quarter, that's where it's all made." Sounded logical, and it was good advice. Several shops with beautiful wares, in a little less crowded street. We even watched an artist at work hand painting a piece. I was a bit... More

During our time in Jerusalem we walked through the armenian and Christian quarters and the were really only a means to an end. Get through as quickly as possible and get to the Jewish quarter - what an incredible difference - clean, spacious and worth spending time in!
