Pinsteps. Zion Gate, Jerusalem

The modern walls of the old city were built by the Turkish Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent. By the way, he restored the most famous mosque in Jerusalem - the Golden Dome over the Rock. Ironically, striving to create a magnificent city not inferior to its ancient greatness, Jerusalem was deprived of its significant historical part. The modern walls of Jerusalem do not include a vital part of the ancient city, such as the city of David and the home of the high priest Kayafa (St. Peter's Church in Gallicantu). The Zion Gate is one of eight gates in the wall of the city, and traces of battles are visible on them. In 1948, the British left Jerusalem, and the civil war in the city between Jews and Arabs was inflamed with a new force.

The tour begins in the car park near the Zion gate. This parking lot is the most convenient for wheelchairs and most close to the old city. The route runs along the flat part of the city completely avoiding steps and steep climbs or descents. The path to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher passes through the Jewish and Christian quarters, the ancient Cardo street and the markets of the Christian part of the city.
