Old windmill that was built out of the Old City to process grain. It’s nice to see from a historical site. It currently is a site of wine sales and sampling

He was convinced that the windmill might help poor people in its surroundings to make a living. That worked around 20 years. Then the windmill stood still until it was reopened in 2012. Most Jerusalem tourists know the windmill as a landmark from which you can oversee large parts of the old city.

This is a safe place to walk around during the daylight hours. I would not recommend walking around after dark. If one is with a group, it will be okay.
