At twilight, restored columns loom 16.6 feet above Jerusalem’s Cardo, the main street from Roman or Byzantine times. A 600-foot stretch of the Cardo has been exposed in the Old City’s Jewish Quarter. Its 40-foot-wide throughway was bounded on either side by a roofed and colonnaded walkway 10 feet wide, with shops opening onto the walkways. The Cardo is just one of five stops along a guided walking tour of “A Thousand Years of History in Jerusalem’s Jewish Quarter.”
