Very nice windmill (no entrance) in the Yemin Moshe Neighborhood. Built by Sir Moshe Mantifury as a work place in the 1860s for Jews who were willing to live outside the "safe" walls of Ancient Jerusalem). There is a great view here of Mount Zion and the Dormision (Tip of it) and if you can walk well - an nice walk up to the old city an Zion gate. You can also see here a replica of the Charriot used by Moshe Mantifyori
