Ramparts Walk – Jerusalem

The ramparts walk took us along the walls of the Old City and had spectacular views of Jerusalem and the Old City. We started at the Jaffa Gate and walked along the southern wall until we reached the Dung Gate. The walls, as part of the heavy fortification around the Old City, went very high with many flights of stairs that sometimes lacked railing. Every five feet or so was a small slit, big enough to shoot and arrow through. Along the way we were able to see great views of the Mount of Olives (4th photo), and East Jerusalem (last photo), which is visibly different from West Jerusalem.

  1. Well done with your Hebrew conversation! 🙂 Feels so good even when it’s short, yeah? 🙂 (Also, love the three palm tree shadow pic)
