About Visit Palestine Center
Visit Palestine Center, located in a beautifully renovated 200 year old building, is an offspring of the startup www.visitpalestine.ps that brought Palestine to the world wide web. It hosts a Tourist Information Center that works to promote and support the tourism industry in Palestine and offers travel information, tourism services and walking tours of high quality, e.g. Bethlehem Quarters, Bethlehem area and Battir. The center also houses a Boutique Gift Shop offering a wide assortment of products made in Palestine and a restaurant (DAJO) famous for its outdoor terrace, its fresh salads and tasty sandwiches served with warm kindness.
Visit Palestine Center is located in one of the buildings of the old quarters of Bethlehem next to St. Joseph School and faces the Central Bus Station (al-Mujama’a). It can be accessed from Manger Street.
