Pinsteps. Pereg Spice Store, Mahne Yehuda, Jerusalem
Places to visit in Jerusalem. Languages: en, ru, he

The Mahane Yehuda neighborhood was established in 1887. Three partners: Johannes Frutiger (a German Protestant and owner of a bank), Shalom Construm, and Joseph Navon founded it. They decided to name the market after the Navon's brother Yehuda. Even earlier, across the road, owned by the Valero family, a trading lot was created. This market was known as the Shook Beit Jacob (Beit Yaakov Market). Arab merchants and fellahs sold their goods to residents who lived outside the Old City. As new neighborhoods grew, the Beit Yaacov market developed. In 1906, the Faraj family of Libyan Jews settled here. Arriving in Israel, they changed their surname to Pereg (the Hebrew word for poppy seeds). The aromas of olive oil, turmeric, caraway seeds, and paprika reign there. Today, Pereg is the leading spice company in Israel.

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?

Jerusalem behind the city walls

This trip is the full-day walking tour to Jerusalem for those who have already been in the city more than one time. We will start the day with two amazing museums that discover the real streets of Jerusalem from the time of King David and King Herod the Great. The city of King David impresses with its antiquity and authenticity. The Jerusalem archaeological park - Davidson Center shows the buildings of the vicinity of the Second Jerusalem Temple, its streets, and even shops of artisans. We will visit the Wailing Wall. We will walk along the southern walls of the old city to the Sultan's Pool and climb a little up the slope to the old windmill in the first suburb built behind the city walls. From the quarter of Moses Montefiori, we will approach the legendary King David Hotel and stop for a rest in Independence Park. At the end of the day, we will take a leisurely walk and eat at the most colorful, tasty, and famous city market - Mahane Yehuda.
