The Stone Artist of Jerusalem

Tours in Jerusalem with Yishay Shavit - the stone artist

Everybody knows that in Jerusalem you must build using Jerusalem stone. An old British mandate regulation is the reason for this and it gives the city a unique character. Does it also limit the architects that work in Jerusalem? During this tour we will walk along King David Street and its surroundings and try to recognize and examine the different techniques and styles that design Jerusalem’s current appearance. Among other sites we will visit the old train station area, King David hotel, Beit Shmuel culture centre, Y.M.C.A. , Mammilla and Safra square area.
