Urban Design Textures. Christian compounds and individual buildings are located both inside and outside the Old City. Christian design identities are to be found in the Christian Quarter, Armenian Quarter and along the Via Dolorosa, which stretches from St. Stephan’s Gate (Lions Gate), west to the Holy Sepulcher. Most churches and Christian institutions, outside the Old City wall, are located in the large fan-shaped urban area from Mahane Yehuda Market, in the west, to Nablus Road in the north-east, and to the German Colony, south of the city center. Most of these buildings, built in the late 19th century and early 20th century, display typical design and ornamental characteristics of the European classic “Neo”-styles which were prevalent during that period: Neo-Gothic, Neo Renaissance, Neo-Baroque etc.
