Where to go Guide
Al Arroub Pool or as it is know in Arabic, Birket El Shatt, is located about 200 meters east of Al-Arroub Refugee Camp. The Pool dates back to the Roman period, and has been used by all the cultures and civilizations who have ruled Palestine in order to collect water. At one time it was connected with Solomon’s Pools south of Bethlehem, but the Pool has been empty of water since 1977. The Palestinian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities has renovated the Pool several times, and it is set to be listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
