Old City of Jerusalem

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of a walking tour of the "Old City" of Jerusalem. It was a fascinating, interesting and beautiful place to spend the day. I was awestruck knowing this area is the birthplace of at least three major religions! Below are a few of my favorite photos.

There's a story behind this ladder but I don't remember enough to be accurate.

Alter brought by the Crusaders nine hundred years ago.
