Jerusalem’s Old City covers almost 1km² completely enclosed within ancient city walls. The city within the modern city of Jerusalem, is divided into quarters – Muslim, Christian, Jewish and Armenian. The Old City is home to the holiest sites of the three monotheist religions. Here you can find the Jewish Western Wall the only remaining wall of the Second Temple; the Muslim Dome of the Rock on Temple Mount and the Christian Church of the Holy Sepulchre and Via Dolorosa.
The church was built on Roman cisterns constructed here to collect water from the spring which runs beneath the upper level of the church. Today you can visit the upper chapter of the church and decend to the crypt where the Roman cisterns were located.
