The old city of Jerusalem extends over an area of approximately one sq. km and is surrounded by city walls. While the area has been inhabited since the 4th millenium BC, the present structures mostly originate from the Bizantyne period. Inside the old city there is a maze of narrow alleys. The old city is divided into Christian, Muslim, Jewish and Armenian quarters. Here are some of the holiest sites of the Christian, Jewish and Muslim faiths: the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Western Wall and the Temple Mount with the Dome of the Rock and the Al Aqsa mosque.
