Independent tours - Audio Guide
For centuries, the Tower of David Fortress was the gateway to Jerusalem. The fortress has been inhabited for generations by the rulers of the city; architectural efforts have been invested in it, battles have been fought around its walls, and crucial historical moments have taken place. In the courtyard of the citadel and within its walls, you can see archeological and structural finds from the various periods, and get to know the rich story of Jerusalem up close.
