Tower of David and Museum of the History of Jerusalem
Right at the entrance to the Old City, near the Jaffa Gate, this old citadel is a good way to start your visit to Jerusalem. From the top, you can admire a great panorama of the area. To learn more about the city's history, visit the Museum of the History of Jerusalem, located inside the fortress, or come for the Night Spectacular show, which combines entertainment and education. Built by Herod the Great, the citadel is believed to be the place where Jesus's death sentence was pronounced. It then became a hub for the Crusaders and the Ottomans, and was restored several times.
