Behind the Mosaics: The Story of the Armenian Quarter

The Armenian Quarter, one of the four quarters in the Old City, is the smallest in area. The Armenians living in this quarter preserve a unique legacy as one of the first nations to adopt Christianity. From the beginning of the Byzantine period, Armenians came to Jerusalem, acquired property, and became influential in city life - a status which continued throughout history.

We will embark on a short journey focusing on the Armenians, including a visit to the complex of the Armenian Monastery of St. Saviour, featuring Armenian ceramics and a monument to the fallen of the Legion de Orient. We will see a khachkar in the Church of St. John, and proceed to the tour’s highlight - the Armenian Museum, showcasing their history and the genocide which befell them during the modern era. In the center of the museum sits the spectacular bird mosaic.
