Pilgrim sites are divided between Old and New Jerusalem for convenience sake. In the Old City a pilgrim faces significant spiritual possibilities; attempting to see New City sites should be reserved for another day. In the New City a good hiker can cover some of the important pilgrim sites over the course of a day. Other sites require vehicular transportation due to their distance from the city center.

Without a doubt one of the most significant spiritual experiences, especially for Protestants, occurs at the Garden Tomb, located just a five minute walk from the northern exit of the Old City, the Damascus Gate. Reputed, by Protestants, to be the true site of the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the site includes lush gardens, reminiscent of the biblical verse describing the site of the crucifixion.
