The Christian Quarter has many religious institutions, the most important being the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, where Jesus was crucified, died, buried and rose again. Most of the residents of the Christian Quarter are Palestinians. The Christian Quarter is in the heart of Jerusalem, surrounded by the Old Walled City.

For most people in the Catholic faith this truly is the birthplace of Christianity, this if the area Jesus is said to be crucified and then resurrected.

With many of the most holiest places to see with churches and walk ways should be on the agenda for all Catholics to explore and take in the ancient area.

One of the top things to do in Jerusalem.

We walked to the Church of Holy Sepulchre via Arab shuk (market) crowded to the point of insanity. The Church means a lot to Christians and we understand and respect it, but it meant nothing to us… same as Via Dolorosa and several churches of very uninspiring architecture.

Nice to walk this area. Lots of nice things to look at and buy in the stalls. Friendly people to talk to. We walked through on our way to and from the Holy Sepulchre.

Very interesting architecture built during the Crusades. Unfortunately many Christians are forgetting basic Christian values in their fervor to visit places considered to be sacred.

A walk through the historic streets of this quadrant. It is somewhat commercialized with all the vendors along the narrow cobblestone walkways. I walked through the area on three days, which included two visits to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Many Christian faiths are present in the area and share custody of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Among others they include the Greek Orthodox, the Roman Catholic, and the Armenian Orthodox,

For many pilgrims, visiting the Christian Quarter is the highlight of their visit to the Holy Land. The Christian Quarter Old City contains many sites of interest. Probably the Via Dolorosa, which follows Christ's journey of suffering, and ends at the Holy Sepulcher where Jesus was crucified, died and was buried, is the highlight. There are many interesting shops in the area, selling everything from Roman antiquities to nuts and herbs. You will usually smell cardamon, the distinctive spice that is included in Arab coffee.

The Christian Quarter is where the Via Dolorosa terminates, at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Should you wish to walk the entire Via Dolorosa, begin your journey in the Muslim Quarter. There is much to see and experience from within the busy Christian Quarter and is an essential destination in any Christian pilgrimage to the Holy Land.

This is the highlight of our 2-week pilgrimage in Holy Land - visiting the Tomb of Christ inside the Holy Sepulchre Church and carrying the Cross by Via Dolorosa across various Stations. All these happening in the Christian Quarter, one of the 4 traditional quarters in the Old City of Jerusalem.
