Walking along the Western Wall (or Wailing Wall) with your guide, you will learn about the origins of this city and the many conflicts that have taken place here historically. The Wall is considered the last remnant of the Jewish Temple, and therefore it is a particularly sacred space.

Also, just a short walk away is the famous Church of the Holy Sepulcher, the place where Jesus is believed to have been crucified and buried.
