Yemin Moshe and Mishkenot Sha'ananim
Yemin Moshe is a small, charming suburb in Jerusalem facing the western side of the Old City. There are about 130 houses in this neighborhood. After the Six Day War, the quarter was renovated and it has since attracted a number of artists whose works are sold in the area's galleries.
The windmill in Yemin Moshe
One can easily identify Yemin-Moshe neighborhood by the large windmill at the top of the hill overlooking the Hinnom Valley on King David Street. The windmill, was originally built to serve the milling needs of the residents of Montefiore's new developments, but it was never operational because of the lack of wind where it was situated.
A great and lovely restaurant is also located just down the stairs from the windmill, which offers a spectacular view of the Old City walls.
A great route into the Old City is to walk down the stairs past the windmill and through the Yemin Moshe gates to the street and walk across and up the hill to Zion Gate. This takes you into the city right near the Jewish Quarter and is a relatively quick way to get to the Western Wall.
