Cardo Maximus

This Roman road was the main north-south street in Jerusalem, and this part was uncovered in the Jewish Quarter. It was built during the reign of the emperor Justinian (527-565) as a continuation of the earlier, Roman, northern part, and linked the two main churches of Byzantine Jerusalem – the Holy Sepulcher and the Nea Church.
