So clean the floors sparkle which is the only place besides the Holy Sepulchre and Christian Quarter. Because the crowds were so light, we were able to stroll several times throughout the four Quarters and see folks going about their daily business of preparing their foods, setting up shop, cleaning their homes and going to Mass or service. Many of the gates and doorways were open in the Armenian Quarter so that a passerby could get a glimpse of life behind the walls! Some of the floors sparkled they were so clean and tidy. No where else did we see this in all of Jerusalem.
The tile work and family name plaques are beautiful and flowers and trees in courtyards lovely.
It was impossible to locate a bathroom in this part of our tour one day whereas other Quarters have such accommodations.

The quarter itself is mostly a closed compound, but St James Armenian Cathedral - open briefly every day for liturgy - is definitely worth a visit! Precious reminder of the rich Christian heritage of the Armenian church.

A really recommend visit these three quarters: Christian, Armenian, Muslim. Is nice because you can remark the differences. For me the Armenian quarter was the less welcome.

The quarters of the old city each bring a different flavor, attractions and many merchants. To get an understanding of the dynamics and complexities of the old city it is good to walk through all four quarters. Each has is special sites worth seeing. As fro Merchants, it is generally priced high as one would expect in a major tourist destination so be sure what you want to buy is best bought there and not elsewhere. An example is the beautiful Hebron glass. If you are going to Hebron by any chance, wait and buy the glass there as it is much less expensive. If not, its beautiful glass and worth its cost as a memorable souvenir. We had a very unpleasant experience with David's Cave store and I would not recommend buying anything at that store in the Armenian Quarter.

Probably the less significant of the four quarters.
Nothing much I can say about this area but its quite dirty and of lower significance than the other three.
