Tips

  • Walk through the Jaffa Gate to see incredible historical sites such as the Tower of David, the Clock Tower, the Turkish-Ottoman Sebil, and many more!
  • Built in 1538 by Suleiman, the Jaffa gate was expanded in 1898 when Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany visited Jerusalem so the German Emperor would not have to dismount his carriage to enter the city.
  • Impresionante! Es como ir al pasado
  • Note its right-angle to the 16th-century Ottoman walls. It was the only one of the Old Citys seven gates constructed this way, probably as a defensive measure. Read more at http://bit.ly/1iLmYRx
