Originally built by The Roman Empire the Cardo in Jerusalem was meant to be the central area of commerce. Roman policy was such that all business was done on the roads leading to Rome.
Today the Cardo has been partially restored and is a beautiful archeological park. There is also an inner area that specializes in artwork and gifts.
Wonderfully excavated and preserved. A real historic gem.
An amazing piece of living history. You can walk and shop a market that has existed for thousands of years.
Read the history here. Great peek into the world of ancient Rome. Some higher end shopping. Most stores have good reputation and some of the galleries are cool.
The Cardo is the old Roman road that runs through the old city of Jerusalem. It is inside the old city. It is lined with many shops and provides access back and forth between the Arab and Jewish quarters. Somewhat dark and musty, but an interesting walk.
