The Christian Quarter of Jerusalem's walled Old City holds the most important Christian church, the Holy Sepulchre, and a number of monasteries, archaeological sites, and shrines along the Via Dolorosa. It is also an exotic shopping area in which hundreds of stores line the narrow, enclosed paths. You will find everything from spices, traditional Arabic embroidered dresses, ceramics, made-to-order T-shirts, souvenirs, religious items, icons, to antiques, beads, and leather goods. Be prepared to bargain! And don't be dismayed when the shopkeeper in the second store you visit informs you that he could have given you the item you just bought for a substantial discount. Don't rush, and do accept the cup of tea or coffee offered by some shop owners.
