Zev Stub     Jerusalem
Thursday, 27 April 1:47 PM

All over the city, cultural institutions, including the Tower of David Museum, provide fascinating tours about different aspects of the city – mostly in Hebrew.  Now it’s time that local residents and tourists alike can delve into the past, explore contemporary Jerusalem, and learn about the different cultures and personalities of the city that have created Jerusalem’s rich and colorful anthropological embroidery that we find today!

The Tower of David Museum is pleased to invite you to a new series of tours in English that will take place at the Tower of David Museum every month and the first in the series, "Jerusalem Rebuilt", will take a look at the city's architecture! 

Throughout different periods, Jerusalem has had many rulers and its history is interwoven with different religious journeys and new military might.  Each time, the rulers of the city left their marks on it, some of which remain to this day: citadels, churches, giant pools, great walls, mosques and wonders of the world. Three different tours will track the magnificent buildings from the days of Herod the Great until modern style architecture.

Jerusalem from Crusader times was a city of remarkable contrasts: on the one hand, the bloody wars were the backdrop to the formidable fortresses that were built under the cross of the Crusader knights and Christian spirituality, on the other hand the city saw the creation of beautiful buildings with an influx of fine art items and luxury objects that came from overseas. The guided tour in English will take participants from Mount Zion to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher exploring both the lives of the knights and kings, queen and bishops as well as the daily lives of the pilgrims and simple fighters Crusader city.
