Very nice windmill (no entrance) in the Yemin Moshe Neighborhood. Built by Sir Moshe Mantifury as a work place in the 1860s for Jews who were willing to live outside the "safe" walls of Ancient Jerusalem). There is a great view here of Mount Zion...More

One of the most iconic sites on Jerusalem. Set in a picturesque historic Yemin Moshe neighborhood. Great views on the Old city walls, David's Tower, Mt. Zion and Jaffo Gate.

A beautiful place in jerusalem. A place where you can walk through beautiful alleyways. A place where the scenery is magical. A windmill of hope for the first residents living outside Jerusalem's old city. Come.and be inspired

Interesting history to the windmill. Great view of the Old City. The website indicated that they were open that particular day until 2 pm. But we found nothing inside or that required access that could be closed off.
