Fodor's Expert Review King Albert Square
Named after the Belgian monarch who was a personal friend of Mayor Meir Dizengoff, this prominent square is surrounded by some interesting monuments. The Bauhaus-style Pagoda House, now luxuriously restored as a private home, was built in 1924. The rooftop ornament gives the building its name. Inside the elegant stairwell of Shifrin House, at 2 Melchett Street, are crumbling remnants of frescoes of the Western Wall and Rachel's Tomb.
