Christian Quarter. The Christian Quarter Jerusalem is one of the four quarters of the ancient, walled Old City of Jerusalem.
The Christian Quarter of Jerusalem's walled Old City holds the most important Christian church, the Holy Sepulchre, and a number of monasteries. The Christian Quarter in Jerusalem is situated in the north-western corner of the Old City, extending from the New Gate in the north, along the western wall of the Old City as far as the Jaffa Gate, along the Jaffa Gate - Western Wall route in the south, bordering on the Jewish and Armenian Quarters, as far as the Damascus Gate in the east, where it borders on the Muslim Quarter. The quarter contains the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, one of Christianity's holiest places.
The Christian quarter was built around the Church of the Holy Sepulchre which is the heart of the quarter. Around the church there are other churches and monasteries . In general the quarter contains few living houses, which are mostly concentrated in the southern-eastern part of the quarter near Jericho Gate. It contains mostly religious tourist and educational buildings, like the Lutheran school and St. Pierre school.
The Christian buildings stand on a big part of the quarter. Besides the Church of the Holy Sepulchre which occupies the most land, the Patriarchy of the Greek Orthodox, the Franciscan monastery, San Salvatore and the Latin Patriarchy take up large areas as well.
The quarter also contains lots of souvenir shops, coffee houses, restaurants and hotels. The shops are mostly concentrated in the market street, David street, and along the Christian Road. Some of the hotels were built by the churches as places for visitors to stay (like the Casa Nova hotel and the Greek Catholic hotel). Others are private hotels.
