Purim Sameach! Crusaders tour on Wednesday March 3rd.

posted Feb 25, 2010, 8:49 AM by Jack Cadranel

Monday is Shushan Purim.  Jerusalem will be celebrating in style so next week I'll be guiding just one public tour - on Wednesday.
On Wednesday March 3rd we'll follow in the footsteps of Crusaders in Jerusalem.  The  Crusaders conquered Jerusalem in 1099 and massacred its inhabitants.  They redeveloped it as a destination for pilgrims.  When they were finally driven out they left behind a rich architectural heritage.  We'll explore some of their buildings and follow the story of the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem.
We'll meet at 9.30am just outside the Jaffa Gate.
The tour will last 2-3 hours and costs NIS 60 per person plus a site entry fee of NIS 2 per person.  Please register in advance 054-647-8955 or
