Jaffa Gate opens onto a plaza at the entrance to the Christian Quarter shopping area, as well as leading (on the right) to the Armenian Quarter and Mount Zion. From here you can enter the Ramparts Walk for a view of the city from the medieval walls, and the David's Tower Museum offers an overview of Jerusalem history stretching back 3000 years. The Christian Information Center is located in the building that was once the Austrian consulate, which provided the region's most reliable postal service. Don't miss the sculpture of a medieval Muslim warrior and Crusader just outside the gate. Inside the gate you will find the graves of the architects who designed the city walls.
