The northwest quadrant of the Old City of Jerusalem is the Christian Quarter, the second-largest of the four quarters. It is actually the first part of the Old City that most visitors encounter as it is just beyond the Jaffa Gate which is the most popular entrance to the Old City for tourists.

Broad streets connected by narrow alleyways make up the Christian Quarter, which contains one of the most significant sites in Christianity; the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The residents of the Quarter includes nuns, monks, priests and other religious figures, many are a part of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem and Greek Patriarchate of Jerusalem.

Additional sites that are worth seeing in the Quarter are; the neo-Romanesque Lutheran Church of the Redeemer; the Muristan which is a marketplace built on the ruins of a hospital that was for pilgrims and Jerusalemites and the Christian Quarter Shuk that boasts a vast amount of memorabilia and gifts that eventually fades into the Muslim Quarter Shuk.
