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.

I really enjoyed my visit to this Quarter. The people seemed very respectful towards others and were very kind and friendly! I visited stores, coffee shops and the main Chapel... worth visiting... Just Amazing!

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.

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!

Rich with history and beautiful architecture in this area of Old Jerusalem. Much to learn and appreciate in this section of the Old City.

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