This imposing city gate to Jerusalem, one of several, is part of the Turkish walls surrounding the Old City, and it is worth a visit. There is a large square upon entering the city with shops and restaurants. The massive walls are amazing.

I used Jaffa gate all the time because it was the most charming and vibrant gate of the old town. Once inside the gate, the cobbled alleys and stairs lead into a maze of churches, shops, restaurants etc.... It was the easiest way to get...More
