The Christian quarter is in the NW part of the old city of Jerusalem. It is home of some 5000 residents, and about 40 Christian institutions.
Most important is the church of the Holy Sepulchre which marks by Christian tradition the place where Jesus was put to death, died, buried and ressurected.
The streets bear mostly tourist souvenir shops. Most worthy are the Aramaic pottery shop of Eli Kouz , his nefew’s olive wood artwork store (George Kouz Store), Zack’s shop of antiquities , Photo Elia and Bilal Fabric Store .
The Christian Quarter is also a good place for some unique street food such as Hummus Arafat (the Best!), or Zalatimo sweets.
