The Cardo is ancient, but has many modern stores in the buildings. It is unbelievable about the many layers of civilizations we see in the Jewish Quarters of the old city. We see many Roman columns. And traces of thousands of years ago.

A pleasant area with Galleries and Craft shops. The actual Cardo is quite small but interesting. Nice to stroll through.

Found in the Jewish Quarter of the Old City - the Cardo was the main road in Jerusalem at the time of the Roman occupation. There is a wonderful wall mural here with life-size figures.
