Destination Information for Palestinian Territories
Steeped in religious history, the significance of many of the cities in the Palestinian Territories means it remains a draw for pilgrims, but the area has so much more to offer in terms of cultural and artistic attractions. Bethlehem is famous for being the birthplace of Jesus, encouraging many travellers to visit for this reason. Alongside this cultural relevance, art is beginning to be revered in the area, with some of Banksy’s work stencilled on the wall separating Bethlehem and Jerusalem.
Another unexpected delight is the Taybeh Beer Brewery, situated in the West Bank, which offers free tours on a daily basis. Here visitors can learn about the history of the area and how a small town began exporting beer cross-country, then subsequently across the world.
