Exploring the fascinating history that is Jerusalem
Discover a city with a story as rich as it gets
One of the oldest cities in the world, Jerusalem enjoys a long and troubled history. Destroyed at least twice, besieged over 20 times, captured and recaptured more than 40 times, and attacked over 50 times, the city has endured thousands of years of conflict and dispute. Considered holy to three major religions—Judaism, Christianity, and Islam—Jerusalem's fascinating clash of cultures is what makes a visit such a rewarding multisensory experience.
