Street of the Prophets

Located to the north of Jaffa Road, the Street of the Prophets is an east-west axis road beginning outside Damascus Gate and ending at the Davidka Square, bridging between old and new Jerusalem. During its heyday in the late 19th century and early 20th century, it was a favorite address for hospitals, churches, monasteries, hospices, government offices, foreign consulates, and wealthy Christian, Jewish and Arab residents. Today the street still boasts the same heterogeneous mix of residents, shopkeepers, and institutions. The elegant 19th-century architecture gives the Street of the Prophets the appellation of "most beautiful street outside the Old City”, while its historic buildings make it a popular site for guided tours. In 1999, a public campaign was initiated by local residents together with the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel and the National Council for Historic Preservation, to restore the architectural heritage of the street. A restoration plan is being developed by architects Peter Bogod and Philip Brandeis.
