Step down into time and walk upon the excavated Street of Pillars - the Cardo – which is an ancient market street in the Jewish Quarter in Older Jerusalem. Today, an archway beckons you to discover the treasures within shops tucked within vaults under the arched-roof arcade. Pictures of the Kotel – the Western Wall, also known as the Wailing Wall – come to life. Most of the wall can be seen within the Kotel Tunnel - with the Herodian Hall being one of its many features. A tour of this tunnel, which underlies the residential streets, will bring you back into time.
