Israel & the Palestinian Territories - Jerusalem (Chapter)
This is the Jerusalem chapter from Lonely Planet's Israel & the Palestinian Territories guidebook.
Jerusalem has been seducing travellers, pilgrims and curiosity seekers since time immemorial. Holy to Muslims, Jews and Christians, the city overflows with sites of intense religious importance and, even for the nonreligious, it's hard not to be moved by the living history in its narrow alleys.
- walk along the sacred Via Dolorosa, long considered the final path of Jesus on his way to Calvary
- gaze at the architectural magnificence of the Dome of the Rock, Jerusalem's most recognisable symbol
- explore the narrow alleys of Mahane Yehuda Market, jam-packed with some of the most delicious fruits and vegetables in the Middle East
- restaurants & accommodation
Coverage includes: Around Jerusalem: Abu Ghosh, Sorek Caves, Haella Valley, Beit Guvrin & Tel Maresha and Latrun.
