Damascus Gate is located in the northwestern part of the city, and access is very easy, with public transportation. It is one of the busiest access roads in Cetate, so do not rush and forget to watch the tip of the gate where you will see the inscribed name of the city on time of the Roman Empire - Aelia Capitolina. If you go on the main road between the Damascus Gate and the Zion Gate, you will find the Christian and Armenian quarters, on the right, and on the left, the Muslim quarter and then the Jewish quarter.

Beautiful but crowded

Walking through this gate brings you into the Arabic world of Jerusalem. All the gates are watched by police and the entrance can be quite busy and narrow because of all the shops.
