Armenian quarter

The Armenians were the first nation to embrace Christianity, in the year 301 C.E.

The Armenian community in Jerusalem flourished during Crusader times, which is when they built the magnificent Church of St. James.

Today the Armenian Quarter is surrounded by high walls, which give it an air of mystery. There is a monastery inside but also a thriving residential community of more then 2,000 people, with schools, a library, and a museum. The Armenians were pioneers in the field of photography in this country and are also world famous for their gorgeous ceramics
