Bethlehem is one of the most beautiful and most visited parts of Palestine.
Its principle city, Bethlehem, is a fascinating place packed with holy spots and historical sites. But venture away from the city and there are many more surprises waiting to be explored, like the breathtaking Mar Saba monastery, located at the heart of a great valley.
The rolling hills to the south are home to the luscious, green village of Battir, while the Bethlehem suburbs of Beit Jala and Beit Sahour are also brimming with adventure. The Bethlehem landscape of rolling green hills is some of the most spectacular in Palestine.
