The Tower of David
The erroneously named Tower of David offers a spectacular view of the Old City of Jerusalem as well as a glimpse of its history.
The Tower of David, which looms over the Jaffa Gate of Jerusalem’s Old City, wasn’t actually built by the famous biblical monarch but almost a millennium later, in the 1st century BC, by King Herod the Great.
