Most are heading to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Many junk shops. Several good artifact shops. Well worth the wander. Fifth station has what is reputed to be best Falafels in Israel.

Well, we really felt like we were walking into a different city when we entered the Christian Quarter. Lots of places to eat and many with American type food. Plus schwerma. Lots of stalls selling clothing and what we could consider “chinese” products. Still, worth...More
