Palestine

Ahlan wa sahlan / Welcome!

Palestine – the Holy Land has a rich culture that goes back thousands of years. Palestinians come from the area located between the east shore of the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River. This area was among the earliest in the world to see human habitation, agricultural communities and civilization.

During the Bronze Age, independent Canaanite city-states were established, and were influenced by the neighbouring civilizations of ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, Phoenicia, Minoan, Crete, and Syria. Palestine is the birthplace of some of the world’s major religions. The region has a magnificent history as a crossroads for religion, trade, culture, and politics.

Get a taste of everything that's unique to Palestinian culture! See a variety of handmade olive wood handicrafts from Bethlehem - Holy Land. You'll also have a chance to be taken back into the biblical times with an amazing showcase of pictures.
