Following two devastating wars and 20 years of enemy occupation, the Jewish Quarter of Old Jerusalem was reconstructed with great attention to harmonious architectural detail. The highlight of the quarter is the excavation of the Cardo, the ancient Roman market street.

The Jewish quarter and the Christian quarter of the old city are the most special places to me. I love the archaeology that is evident in this section and the newness and cleanest of the Jewish quarter is wonderful.

Amazing revitalization of this ancient city. Imagine how the ancient Children of Israel lived before and after the Roman conquest. Find the bougainvillea that adorn the city.
